Lenten Lamentations

Lenten Lamentations

This moving sung devotion of the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ used weekly during Lent originated in Warsaw at the Church of the Holy Cross in 1707 where Frederick Chopin served as organist. Its sources reach back to the mystery plays of the 12th Century. The melodies and text unite the participant in prayerful meditation with the suffering of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
