(O) O Vos Omnes

O Vos Omnes is responsory, originally sung as part of Roman Catholic liturgies for Holy Week, and now often sung as a motet.  The text is adapted from the Latin Vulgate translation of Lamentations 1:12.  It was often set as part of the Tenebre Responsories for Holy Saturday.

O vos omnes qui transitis per viam, attendite et videte:  si est dolor sicut dolor meus...

Hello, Liz! I went to Catholic school from kindergarten through 12th grade so I'm familiar with this! The singers in the video sound lovely.

Have a wonderful week and happy A to Z!!
