Product details

Exile Lamentations is a triptych of choral pieces which reflect upon the experience of displacement, homelessness and banishment.

The starting point for Exile Lamentations is found in the Lamentations of Jeremiah, which play an important part in both Christian and Jewish traditions.

This three-movement piece juxtaposes the poetry of C20th Palestinian poets with the ancient Lamentations texts. The music employs a vast array of choral textures in its illustration of the powerful textual elements.
