This is a collection of "Lamentations", ie settings of verses from the Old Testament "Lamentations of Jeremiah". There are works by White, Tallis, Palestrina, Lassus and de Britto. I guess you can get some of this elsewhere but maybe not all together?
Anyway it's lovely music, well sung and directed with an excellent recording (Chapel of New College, Oxford). Well worth the small investment to explore this repertoire.
