The Lamentations to the Theotokos are sung on the feast of the Dormition on August 15, before a special Epitaphios depicting the Theotokos in the grave. Modeled after the Lamentations to the Lord Jesus on Holy Friday, these 176 hymns are sometimes called the "Jerusalem Service." The hymns are metered to be sung to the common melodies.
The practice of singing these hymns is less well-known than the universal Holy Friday service, and we hope that this exclusive booklet will raise awareness of its beauty.
