Notes & Reviews:

Part of an ancient tradition of setting the text of the Lamentations of Jeremiah to music, François Couperin's Lessons of Darkness are certainly one of his most famous works, and the pinnacle of Baroque vocal music. Written in 1714, probably for the Abbey of Longchamp, they represent the culminating point of the French Tenebrae Lessons tradition and are considered the masterpiece of the genre.
