Emilio de’ Cavalieri’s “Lamentations of the Prophet Jeremiah”

I’m unfamiliar with this work.

In fact, I’m unfamiliar with this composer.

Strange stuff, indeed. Yet that strangeness seems entirely appropriate for the day. Even though they come each year, Holy Saturday’s strange absences are as uncomfortable and unsettling to me as anything I’ve ever experienced.

Just as they should be.
