Jerusalem Mattins

After Crucifixion Vespers and the funerary service at the Ukrainian Catholic parish, a group of us stayed as sang the Lamentation "Jerusalem" Mattins well into the night in a very rushed and abbreviated form. I had forgotten this beautiful chant and wished we used it

Coming to Your tomb at dawn, the ointment-bearing women sprinkled
sweet and fragrant spices on You!
