Tuba Mirum
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Lyrics

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?

Here's the translation if anyone wants it:
The trumpet will send its wondrous sound
throughout earth's sepulchres
and gather all before the throne.
Death and nature will be astounded,
when all creation rises again,
to answer the judgement.
A book will be brought forth,
in which all will be written,
by which the world will be judged.
When the judge takes his place,
what is hidden will be revealed,
nothing will remain unavenged.
 What shall a wretch like me say?
Who shall intercede for me,
when the just ones need mercy?

Walter Berry (Bass) is amazing in this. He doesn't "cheat" a breath in the first phrase like so many do. Guy is in a class of his own, amazing.

Antoine Garnier

so true. He's perfect


A true OG

It took me a second to realize that the bass and tenor are two different people


Twins brothers


@Ravenelvenlady They look the same, they have the same haircut, very similar glasses, same stern face.. :D It's not the musical connection. They are like brothers.


The entry-musical connection was absolutely seamless. I could understand why you would think that.

Es dificil encontrar un elenco tan expectacular como este. El poderio de Berry, la calidez y belleza de la vox de Schreider, la solemnidad de Chista Ludwig y la delicadeza y timbre de Gundula Janowitz.


Peter Schreier is considered one of the "Less beautiful" tenors in the history of opera.....but NOBODY comes close to his performance on this.
