Dies irae (Mozart's Requiem)

Posted by tom | Nov 27, 2011

. . . Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us. . . .

Lamb of God, who takes away
the sins of the world,
grant them eternal rest. . . .

Probably non-traditional, but I'm beginning Advent by reflecting upon Dies irae (Mozart's Requiem, English translation posted here). I am inspired by the hope- and joy-filled performance by a spontaneously formed choir and orchestra called RMP (Resistenza Musicale Permanente - Permanent Musical Resistance), http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-1hDQpNz5s. I read that this occured at a huge gathering against the exploitation of women (Piazza del Popolo, Rome, 2/3/2011).
