The Lamentations of Jeremiah may be unremittingly sad, but they have had a deep resonance for composers throughout the ages. This is a collection that reflects that diversity - from John Mundy's setting, which highlights the grave concern over schisms in the Catholic Church of the sixteenth century, through to Rudolph Mauersberger's motet, which mourns the destruction of the city of Dresden in 1945. Two new pieces were commissioned especially for this project, and are recorded here for the first time: John Duggan's haunting set of three Lamentations for choir, trumpet and solo soprano; and Cecilia McDowall's exotic and powerful The Lord is Good, which was shortlisted for a BASCA award in 2012.

Sospiri's CD Requiem on the Gift for Music label was warmly received, the Oxford Times reviewer "captivated by these pieces when I heard them in performance, and they are just as mesmerising on disc." The Lost City continues Sospiri's winning combination of repertoire from early music through to the present day, creating their own meditative cutting edge by appealing to audiences both contemporary and conservative, secular and spiritual.

Founded in 2006 and directed by the dual team of conductor/vocalist Christopher Watson and composer John Duggan, vocal ensemble Sospiri has gained a reputation for richly expressive performances of choral repertoire which has been carefully selected for its reflective and moving qualities. This is their first recording for Naxos.
