Laima Olsson, Elisabeth Holmertz and members of Paulus Barokk rehearsing Lamentationer, Oslo 2011
Program Note

"We gat our bread with the peril of our lives" (King James) The Lamentations is a detailed eyewitness report from an occupation. Nothing is omitted including media coverage analysis ("Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee.") Just this war took place 2600 years ago, but we recognize everything from TV news.
