Agnus Dei
Choir of New College Oxford Lyrics


Agnus Dei,
Qui tollis peccata mundi,
Miserere nobis.

Agnus Dei,
Qui tollis peccata mundi,
Miserere nobis.

Agnus Dei,
Qui tollis peccata mundi,
Dona nobis pacem.

Translation is the standard form of the movement
The Lamb of God,
Who took the sins of the world,
Have mercy upon us.
The Lamb of God,
Who took the sins of the world,
Have mercy upon us.
The Lamb of God,
Who took the sins of the world,
Grant us peace.

Frederick Arcala

This is absolutely mind-boggling. I don't know if I'm getting humble, utterly happy or frighteningly scared. There so much emotion flooding from this astonishing song. I bow down!!!

Gia Bee

halfentity I truly feel quite the same. 😇

Marc M

So touching....one of the best performances of Barber's Agnus Dei that exist.

Even though I am an atheist, I find this music absolutely divine. It seems religion was a powerful source of inspiration for musicians and composers.

@Erich Groat Yes! It is always amazing what these music can(intends to) bring to us it's not surprising at all that they would react to it that way.

I agree this is very important, these relly helps me in contemplation Well the Eastern Rite Catholics have preserved much of the tradition/music, Roman Catholics, not so much.

In my country, Philippines, where the songs used we're mostly by the works of (and similar to) David Haas'. Which for me seem to allude to protestant worship songs(which think is intended to bring familiarity to protestants so it will be easier to go back to the one true Church).

It saddens me that we are hearing less of these, the modern mass
I feel lacks contemplative spirit. I think masses should have more time for contemplative music than sermons.

Erich Groat

@Raki Hah! God bless you too. What a surprise! Most of the time I get shot down by some internet atheist around here for that... but when it comes to liturgical music, isn't is amazing how atheists will say "I'm an atheist, but..."

This music is so important. Yeah, this choir is Anglican, but the Anglicans have done a far better job at keeping Catholic music alive than we Catholics have. What do you think?
