The Monteverdi choir sings Rudolf Mauersberger's setting of the song of Jeremiah, which he composed after the bombing of Dresden on February 13-15, 1945. The Dresden boys' choir premiered this August 4, 1945 in the ruin of the Kreuzkirche, but it is still rarely performed or heard outside of east Germany.
