Hilarion Alfeyev's Christmas Oratorio 24: Rachel's Lament (video)

The prophecy of Jeremiah fulfilled following the slaughter of the infants of Bethlehem, as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew: "A voice was heard in Ramah, weeping and loud lamentation, Rachel weeping for her children; she refused to be comforted, because they are no more". Sung here by Khibla Gerzvama.
