The Lord's Lamentations (Romanian Orthodox Church Chant)

Romanian Patriarchal Cathedral Choir "Tronos" performing "The Lord's Lamentation


s" (Jesus Christ's funeral service, held in the Romanian Orthodox Church, on the
day of Holy Friday, before the great and Holy Feast of Pascha).
The text of the Lamentations may have been composed by St.Theodore? the Studite
(+ 826) himself. The melody is a different story. Initially it was a broader ver
sion, but the current one dates from the 18th century. In Greek, it is slightly
different. The Russians don't sing the Lamentations, but instead read it.
