A brief moment from Ensemble Eborensis‘s concert last friday. We were in the Church of Aguiar, a village that received a letter of Foral from King D. Manuel 500 years ago, in 1516.

This was a very nice concert and the group was very well received by the comittee and the Mayor of Viana do Alentejo. This excerpt is from the Lamention by Manuel Cardoso (1566-1650) we sung in the concert. As you may know, every line starts with a Hebrew letter. This is the third lesson fro Maundy Thursday (Jod. Manum suam), the letter “Caph” starting the third section.

    Lovely. I just performed the entire three days of Victoria’s “Lamentations of Jeremiah” at St. Luke in the Fields in NYC last weekend. Such glorious music to sing. I love how the Hebrew alphabet was used for all of those Lamentations. Aleph…Beth…etc.

    1. Victoria’s are quite something! Yes, they uesd to embelish the hebrew letters with much of the counterpoint artifices… Mostly a lot of suspensions in all voices
