Second lesson "Vau. Et egressus est" by Portuguese composer Manuel Cardoso (1566-1650) of the Lamentations of Jeremiah for Maundy Thursday. The work is for six voices (SSAATB). Original note values were kept in this edition and the work was transposed a second upwards. There are several recordings of this work - one of Cardoso's finest - available in YouTube.
