A Cypriot Lamentation of the Panagia For Great Friday



Following Great Friday Matins on Holy Thursday evening, it is a tradition for women to sing lamentations of the Virgin Mary at the foot of the Cross displayed in churches in imitation of the Mother of God who stood by Her Son crucified. The song above is a Cypriot song sung by Nektaria Karantzi.
