an outstanding performance by one of Britain's most popular operatic Sopranos, Lynne Dawson with Verdi's Requiem. Lynne's website has her diary from the time she made her remarkable performance before a live TV audience of over two billion people.
Libera me, Domine, de morte aeterna, in die illa tremenda quando coeli movendi sunt, et terra:
dum veneris judicare saeculum per ignem.
Tremens factus sum ego et timeo, dum discussio venerit, atque ventura ira.
Dies illa, dies irae, calamitatis et miseriae, dies magna et amara valde.
Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Translation from Latin:
Deliver me, O Lord, from eternal death in that dread day when the heavens and the Earth shall be shaken, and you will come to judge the world by fire.
I tremble in awe of the judgment and the coming wrath.
Day of wrath, day of calamity and woe, great and exceeding bitter day.
Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
