Program

This programme by Ensemble O Vos Omnes (L’Auditori’s resident choir) contrasts two works on the same theme: the prophet Jeremiah’s Book of Lamentations from the Old Testament, very probably compiled in the 6th century BC. The book’s mournful laments, which conjure up the destruction of Jerusalem and the Jewish people’s exile, have been set to music in different adaptations throughout Europe’s history.     

The concert includes the version by Joan Pau Pujol (1570-1626), a Catalan composer who trained in Mataró and worked as an organist in Tarragona and Barcelona. Ensemble O Vos Omnes will also perform a work that the choir itself has revived: a version by Bernat Icart, who was probably born in Camp de Tarragona. Relatively little is known about this 15th-century composer and his music, although he worked for the Kingdoms of Sicily and Naples in the service of the Renaissance Castilian monarchy.
