Offertorium Domine Jesu
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Lyrics


DOMINE Jesu Christie, Rex Gloriaee,
libera animas omnum fidelium
defunctorum de peonis 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 ejus.

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 ejus.

Domine Iesu Christe, Rex gloriæ,
libera animas omnium fidelium defunctorum
de pœnis inferni et de profundo lacu:
libera eas de ore leonis,
ne absorbeat eas tartarus,
ne cadant in obscurum:
sed signifer sanctus Michael
repræsentet eas in lucem sanctam:
Quam olim Abrahæ promisisti, et semini eius.

O Lord Jesus Christ, King of glory,
deliver the souls of all the faithful departed
from the pains of hell and from the bottomless pit:
deliver them from the lion's mouth,
that hell swallow them not up,
that they fall not into darkness,
but let the standard-bearer holy Michael
lead them into that holy light:
Which Thou didst promise of old to Abraham and to his seed.

1:46 Perfection, my favorite part of the whole Réquiem.

I always slip out of reality, when I'm deep into this part

Fo3 is better than Fo:NV

I need to know how "poenis" is pronounced

This is in my opinion a pure and divine music, one of the very perfect ones.

Brilliant - the tempo emphasises the urgency, drive and anger of the "promisisti". it becomes "you *promised* - you'd better deliver". A kind of waving a fist at God. And listen to that trombone at 2.18. I know it's Sussmayr's, but it's like it just can't resist singing along with the tenors. Joyous, sad and angry all at once. Only criticism is that the brass could be a touch clearer - that could be YouTube, though.

1:18-1:46 = perfection.
