Editor: Andreas Stenberg (submitted 2023-03-10).   Score information: A4, 10 pages, 130 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: A semi-diplomatic edition. There are some errors in the printed source. The readings of the source are given in the footnotes. The "mensurstrichte" layout is used but the "barlines" between staves indicate rhythmical groupings similar to bars in modern notation. The underlay of the text mostly follows the underlay in the source.

  Incipit oratio Jeremiae prophete

Recordare, Domine, quid acciderit nobis;
intuere et respice opprobrium nostrum.

Hæreditas nostra versa est ad alienos,
domus nostræ ad extraneos.

Pupilli facti sumus absque patre,
matres nostræ quasi viduæ. (Laments 5: 1-3.)

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum.
