In a musical score, Dolente (doh-LEN-tay) is a directive to play a passage in a sorrowful, mournful manner.

Dolente is an Expressive card. It directs, or rather allows, the querent to grieve what needs grieving for, or to allow others to grieve in their way, to mourn a loss or express sorrow. It can also indicate a time when such a time is underway.
