The sacred text “O vos omnes,” taken from the Latin translation of the Book of Lamentations, invites meditation on the subject of sorrow: “O all you who walk by on the road, pay attention and see: if there be any sorrow like my sorrow.” The passage was quite logically adopted by the Catholic Church into the religious services during Holy Week. In 1932, the famous cellist Pablo Casals composed a choral setting of this text for a choir in his native Catalonia. The Santa Fe Women’s Ensemble, directed by Linda Raney, includes it in a Good Friday concert that features spiritual music by five composers as well as literary readings. The performance on Friday, March 29, which begins at 5:30 p.m. and runs about a half-hour, is part of the “TGIF” series that enlivens every Friday at First Presbyterian Church (208 Grant Ave.). No tickets are required, but free-will offerings are accepted. For information, call 982-8544, ext. 16.
