Lacrimosa


Not depressed, sad or anything like that. Just...so much love for this composition.


Lacrimosa is Latin for "weeping"
The Lacrimosa is part of the Dies Iraesequence in the Requiem mass. Its text comes from the 18th and 19th stanzas of the sequence. Many composers, including Mozart, Berlioz, and Verdi have set the text as a discrete movement of the Requiem.

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