Requiem and Kyrie
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine; et lux
perpetua luceat eis. Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Sion, et tibi red
detur votum in Jerusalem. Exaudi orationem meam, ad te otnnis caro
Kyrie, eleison, Christe, eleison.
Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord; and let
perpetual light shine on them. A hymn becometh Thee, O God, in Sion; and
a vow shall be paid to Thee in Jerusalem. O hear my prayer: all flesh shall come to Thee. Lord have mercy on us. Christ have mercy on us.
Dies Irae
Dies irae, dies ilia Solvet saeclum in favilla, Teste David cum Sibylla. Quantits tremor est juturus, Quando Judex est venturus, Cuncta stricte discussurus!
Days of wrath and doom impending, Heaven and earth in ashes ending! David's word with Sibyl's blending! Oh, what fear man's bosom rendeth, When from heaven the Judge descendeth, On whose sentence all dependeth!
Tuba Mirum
Tuba mirutn spargens sonum Per sepulcra regionum, Coget omnes ante thronum. Mors stupebil et nalura Cum resurget creatura, Judicanti responsura.
Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth, Through earth's sepulchres it ringeth, All before the throne it bringeth. Death is struck and nature quaking, All creation is awakening, To its Judge an answer making.
Liber Scriptus
Liber scriptus projeretur, In quo totem continetur, Unde mundus judicelur. Judex ergo cum sedebit, Quidquid latet, apparebit: Nil inultum remanebit. Dies irae, dies ilia, Solvet saeclum in javilla, Teste David cum Sibylla.
Lo! The book exactly worded, Wherein all hath been recorded; Thence shall judgment be awarded. When the Judge his seat attaineth, And each hidden deed arraigneth, Nothing unavenged remaineth. Days of wrath and doom impending, Heaven and earth in ashes ending! David's word with Sibyl's blending!
Quid Sum Miser
Quid sum miser tune dicturus Quem patronum rogaturus, Cum vix Justus sit securus
What shall I, frail man, be pleading Who for me be interceding, When the just are mercy needing
Rex Tremendae
Rex tremendae majestatis, Qui salvandos salvas gratis, Salva me, jons pietatis.
King of majesty tremendous, Who dost free salvation send us, Fount of pity, then befriend us.
Recordare, Jesu pie, Quad sum causa tuae viae; Ne me perdas ilia die. Quaerens me, sedisti lassus, Redemisti Crucetn passus; Tantus labor non sit cassus. Juste Judex ultionis, Donum fac remissionis Ante diem rationis.
Think, kind Jesu, my salvation Caused Thy wondrous Incarnation; Leave me not to reprobation. Faint and weary Thou has sought me, On the Cross of suffering bought me, Shall such grace be vainly brought me Righteous Judge, for sin's pollution, Grant Thy gift of absolution, Ere that day of retribution.
Ingemisco tamquam reus, Culpa rubet vultus mevs, Supplicanti parce, Deus. Qui Mariam absolvisti, Et latronem exaudisli, Mihi quoque spem dedisti. Preces meae non sunt dignae, Sed tu bonus jac benigne, Ne perenni cremer igne. Inter oves locum praesta, Et ab hoedis me sequestra, Statuens in parte dextra.
Guilty now I pour my moaning, All my shame with anguish owning; Spare, O God, Thy suppliant groaning. Through the sinful woman shriven, Through the dying thief forgiven, Thou to me a hope hast given. Worthless are my prayers and sighing, Yet, good Lord, in grace complying, Rescue me from fires undying. With Thy sheep a place provide me, From the goat afar divide me, To Thy right hand do Thou guide me.
Conjutatis malediclis, Flommis acribus addictis: Voca me cum benedictis. Oro supplex et acclinis, Cor contritum quasi cinis: Gere curam mei finis.
When the wicked are confounded, Doomed to flames of woe unbounded, Call me, with Thy Saints surrounded. Low I kneel with heart submission! See, like ashes my contrition! Help me in my last condition!
Dies irae, dies ilia, Solvet saeclum in favilla, Tesle David cum Sibylla.
Days of wrath and doom impending, Heaven and earth in ashes ending! David's word with Sibyl's blending !
Lacrymosa dies ilia, Qua resurget ex favilla Judicandus homo reus. Huic ergo parce, Deusl Pie Jesu Domine, Dona eis requiem. Amen.
Ah, that day of tears and mourning! From the dust of earth returning, Man for judgment must prepare him; Spare, O God, in mercy spare him! Lord, all pitying, Jesu blest, Grant them Thine eternal rest. Amen.
Domine Jesu Christe, Rex gloriae, libera animas omnium fidelium dejunclorum de poenis injerni et de profundo lacu.
Libera eas de ore leonis, ne absorbent eas Tartarus, ne cadanl in obscurum: sed signifer sanctus Michael repraesentet eas in lucem sanctam: quam olim Abrahae promisisti et semini ejus.
Hostias et preces tibi, Domine, laudis offerimus: tu suscipe pro animabus Mis, quorum hodie memoriam facimus: jac eas, Domine, de morte transire ad vitam.
Lord Jesus Christ, King of glory, deliver the souls of all the faithful departed from the pains of hell, and from the deep pit.
Deliver them from the lion's mouth, lest hell swallow them, lest they fall into darkness. And let the standardbearer, St. Michael, bring them into the holy light which Thou didst promise of old to Abraham and his seed.
We offer Thee, O Lord, a sacrifice of praise and prayer; accept them in behalf of the souls we commemorate this day; and let them, O Lord, pass from death to life.
Sanctus, Sanctus, Sattctus,
Dominus Deus Sabaoth.
Pleni stint coeli et terra gloria tua,
Hosanna in excelsis.
Benedictus, gut venit in nomine Domini.
Hosanna in excelsis.
Holy, Holy, Holy,
Lord of Hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the
Lord. Hosanna in the highest!
Agnus Dei
Ignus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi: dona eis requiem sempilernam.
Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, give them eternal rest.
Lux Aeterna
Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine, cum sanctis tuis in aelernum quia pius es.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, el lux perpetua luceat eis.
Let eternal light shine upon them, O Lord, with thy saints for ever, because Thou art merciful.
Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord: and let perpetual light shine upon them.
Libera Me
Libera me, Dotnine, de morte aeterna, in die ilia tremenda; quando coeli movendi sunt et terra. I)tint veneris judicare saeculum per ignem.
Tremens jactus sum ego, et timeo, dum discussio venerit atque Ventura ira.
Dies irae, dies ilia, calamilatis et miseriae, Dies magna et amara valde. Dum veneris judicare . . . Requiem aeternam . . . Libera me, Domine . . .
Lord, deliver my soul from the doom of
eternal death on the dread day of judgment;
when the heavens and earth shall both be
moved. When Thou shalt come in the midst
of fire to judge the whole world. Full of terror am I and of dreadful fear of
the judgment that shall come on the day of
Thy wrath.
Day of anger, day of mourning. Utter confusion shall befall them, and utmost
bitter sorrow. Rest eternal . . . Deliver me, O Lord . . .
Verdi composed the Requiem in Memory oj Alessandro Manzoni when he was sixty years old. From the age of sixteen when the composer first read Manzoni's novel, promessi sposi, Verdi regarded the novelist as a saint. The one brief meeting Verdi had with Manzoni in 1848 confirmed and deepened his admiration for the man; he revered him personally and considered him, together with Rossini, one of their age's towering representatives of Italian creativity. Manzoni, who died in 1873 at the age of eightynine, is frequently bracketed with Garibaldi as a personification of the ideal of Italian nationalism, Garibaldi working for the political freedom and unity of the Italian states and Manzoni, the poet and novelist, attempting to unify the country through its language.
The Requiem was given its premiere in Milan on May 22, 1874, the first anniversary of Manzoni's death; Verdi himself conducted. The work was first sung in Ann Arbor twenty years later by the University Choral Union at the first May Festival in 1894. Tonight's performance of the Requiem is the tenth by the Choral Union since then. The four soloists, American soprano Smith, Bulgarian contralto Milcheva, Russian tenor Sotkilava, and Finnish bass Talvela, are all making their Ann Arbor debuts in this dramatic closing concert of the Musical Society's 100th season.
