Sequentia Dies Irae
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Lyrics

Dies irae, dies illa
Solvet saeclum in favilla,
Teste David cum Sibylla.

Quantus tremor est futurus,
Quando judex est venturus,
cuncta stricte discussurus!

Tuba mirum spargens sonum
Per sepulchra regionum,
Coget omnes ante thronum.

Mors stupebit et natura,
Cum resurget creatura,
Judicanti responsura.

Liber scriptus proferetur,
In quo totum continetur,
unde mundus judicetur.

Judex ergo cum sedebit,
Quidquid latet apparebit,
Nil inultum remanebit.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus,
Quem patronum rogaturus,
Cum vix justus sit securus ?

Rex tremende majestatis,
Qui salvandos salvas gratis
Salva me, fons pietatis.

Recordare. Jesu pie,
Quod sum causa tue vie:
Ne me perdas illa die.
Querens me, sedisti lassus:
Redemisti, crucem passus:
Tantus labor non sit cassus.
Juste judex ultionis,
Donum fac remissionis
Ante diem rationis.
Ingemisco tanquam reus:
Culpa rubet voltus meus:
Supplicanti parce, Deus.
Qui Mariam absolvisti,
Et latronem exaudisti,
Mihi quoque spem dedisti.
Preces mez non sunt digne;
Sed tu bonus fac benigne:
Ne perenni cremer igne.
Inter oves locum presta,
Et ab hedis me sequestra,
Statuens in parte dextra.

Confutatis maledictis,
Flammis acribus addictis,
Voca me cum benedictis.
Oro supplex et acclinis;
Cor contritum quasi cinis:
Gere curam mei finis.

Lachrymosa dies illa,
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus:
Huic ergo parce, Deus.
Pie Jesu, Domine,
Dona eis requiem.

2:28-2:48 the best single piece of music created in all human history. Absolutely divine. In 20 seconds. An absolute genious


This performance is resplendently passionate in keeping with the composer's passions. For example, in Lacrimosa, it sounds like some of the singers are weeping. Magnificent.

Scarlattino Jacob

I will have this play on my wedding day (despite it being a requiem)

Matteo Cassano

Davvero meravigliosa,signori non troverete da nessuna altra parte composizione migliore di questa


Gives me chills, and always reminds me of the World at War intro credits...

Maria Ess

incredible how a very simple gregorian chant could become THIS in the 1700s. Geniuses shall last forever!

David Ramirez

Beautiful, majestic, I can't just stop replaying this over and over to feel excited or relaxed, I am very identified with this music, It kind of rises any feeling from me every time!!!

William Price

If there was a piece of music that accurately depicted the depression and disappointment created by 2020, this is it.

Alanje Santos

Lacrimosa é um dos melhores músicas de Mozart.
