Ash Wednesday Mozart: Requiem Mass - Lacrimosa   


5 March 2014, 13:25

How about a little more Mozart?

Come on, twist my arm.

I picked this one because the words & translation are on there the entire time. But for convenience, here is the text) (repeats removed):

Latin Text

Lacrimosa dies illa
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus.
Huic ergo parce, Deus:
Pie Jesu Domine,
Dona eis requiem. Amen.

English translation

Full of tears shall be that day
On which from ashes shall arise
The guilty man to be judged;
Therefore, O God, have mercy on him.
Gentle Lord Jesus,
grant them eternal rest. Amen.
