The edition of the Lamentation for Maundy Thursday by Portuguese composer Manuel Cardoso (1566-1650) is now available at my MusicaNeo page. This is the Lectio II (Vau. Et egressus est) of the Lamentations scored for six voices (SSAATB). The work was published in Cardoso’s last print, the Livro de varios motetes…, printed in Lisbon at the Craesbeeck workshop in 1648. The Vau. Et egressus est is, in my opinion, one of Cardoso’s finest works.
This Lamentation has been recorded by several early music groups. Here you can find the Ars Nova Copenhagen, directed by Bo Holten, version. Not my favourite one, but the only available on YouTube.
