With texts taken from the writings of Isaiah, this major work for unaccompanied TTBB chorus is conceived as an artistic response to The Lamentations of Jeremiah the Prophet by Thomas Tallis. Jeremiah’s mourning over the destruction of Jerusalem is heartfelt and appropriate, but is not “the end of the story” for Christian believers. The great Old Testament writer Isaiah left many prophetic promises of great joy to come, and it is from these utterances that the composer has drawn the text for this work. Though this piece makes a great companion piece to the Tallis Lamentations, it is intended as a standalone work, suitable for use either in concert or in worship.
