Domine Jesu
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Lyrics

Domine, Jesu Christe, Rex gloriae,
libera animas omnium fidelium defunctorum
de poenis inferni
et de profundo lacu.
Libera eas de ore leonis
ne absorbeat eas tartarus,
ne cadant in obscurum;
Sed signifer sanctus Michael
repraesentet eas in lucem sanctam,
Quam olim Abrahae promisisti
et semini eius.

Today we are spoiled with music and media. But imagine seeing this in concert at the time, it must've been like standing before God on his throne in heaven!

Quam olim Abrahae promisisti, just gorgeous structure.  And I'm not even Christian.

@DJKLProductions Yes, it has to do with Christianity.


@DJKLProductions That depends on your view of Christianity. ALL Christianity is a human construction, or why isn't it all the same?


I know it is an old commentary, but I need to say: this composition is made for a Christian purpose, but it still a composition by a human, so the structure has nothing to do with Christianity.

Neither am I, but I have an unhealthy interest in this.
