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.

If I could I would marry this

Oz Music

To marry this I have to divorce first and it will never happen 😅

Echo Plots

I have to admit, sometimes this requiem fucks my mind


The part in which the lyrics complain to god that a pact was made with abraham would say " I do" "I do wanna marry you"

Iason Marmaras

I believe it's not actually impossible. Hard to really define "this" in this case, but people have married the Eiffel Tower before, I hear! :)

Álex the Benighted

I will marry Mozart then.

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


@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.
