"O my son, Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! Would I had died for you, O Absalom, my son, my son!" (2 Samuel 18:33)

 

The tragic story of David and his son Absalom, and the lament of a father for his beloved child, has been the text for many beautiful and touching compositions over the centuries.

 

We hope you'll plan to join The King's Counterpoint

on Patriot's Day weekend as we remember the fallen

and share a few of the many incredible and moving

settings of David's lament, including compositions by

Tomkins, Weelkes, Ramsey, Billings, Whitacre, Gombert and Josquin,
and featuring Victoria's beautiful 
Officium Defunctorum for 6 voices.
