Playlist for 19th September – Lamentations

Written by on September 20, 2010

This weeks music is inspired by the Catholic Tenebrae services and the verses of the  Book of Lamentations from the Hebrew Bible.  Tenebrae is Latin for darkness and the music is generally sombre and serious but oftern very beautiful.
