Thomas Tallis’s setting of the Lamentations of the prophet Jeremiah is undeniably one of the most revered works of the Renaissance canon. While 16th century Roman Catholics like Tallis primarily associated this text, which describes the aftermath of the destruction of Jerusalem, with Holy Thursday, Tallis’s beautiful arrangement of the verses transcends liturgical use. Performed by the superb singers of New York Polyphony, this story of finding faith in times of despair proves as relevant today as it has throughout millennia.
