Utilizing traditional Byzantine melodies, this 74-minute English version of the Lamentations is a professionally recorded full-length version of the Lamentations as sung during Matins of Great and Holy Saturday. During Great Lent, no sacred music is more poignant or powerful than the three distinct Byzantine melodies used in the Lamentations. It is said that the angels praise God through song. This CD seeks to emulate the angels and encourages listeners to reach with heart, mind, and voice to glorify the Creator—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Byzantine melodies assigned to this special Holy Week service are beautifully sung and deeply prayerful.
