Two laments and lullaby


You can discover the Plainte for choir, soloists and baroque ensemble by Diederik Glorieux on his Soundcloud page. The text of the work has no meaning, but is composed of some common Syrian names that form the basis of the newly written fragments of text. In the original work there are twelve lamentations - resigned at one time, rebellious at one time - and a lullaby. Glorieux adapted two of them and the closing Turkish lullaby into Two laments and Lullaby especially for our website Choral Music from Flanders. He reduced the score to a mixed choir and organ so that a choir can also sing the work in other circumstances, without the specific instrumentation and the original link of the Plainte to J.S. Bach's Actus Tragicus.
