The hymn ascribed to Thomas of Celano contains 18 rhymed stanzas (17 tercets, 1 quatrain), to which a later, anonymous writer added an unrhymed couplet, ending in “Amen.” The impressive plainsong melody to which the hymn was sung was used by composers of religious works from the 16th century onward, either in its original form or as the basis of a polyphonic composition. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Giuseppi Verdi were among the composers of religious works who wrote original music on the text of the hymn. The original melody had strong appeal during the Romantic period and was used, often in the form of a parody or to suggest the supernatural or the macabre, in many secular compositions by Hector Berlioz, Camille Saint-Saëns, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and other composers. ------ Credit : Artist: The Gregorian choir of the Grimbergen abbey Track: Prosa, dies irae Album: Voices Of Tranquillity, The Soothing Sounds Of Gregorian Chant (P) Naive -------- Latin Text : 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 sepulcra 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 tremendae majestatis qui salvandos salvas gratis salva me fons pietatis Recordare Jesu pie quod sum causa tuae viae ne me perdas illa die Quaerens me sedisti lassus redemisti Crucem passus tantus labor non sit cassus Juste judex ultionis donum fac remissionis ante diem rationis Ingemisco tamquam reus culpa rubet vultus meus supplicanti parce Deus Qui Mariam absolvisti et latronem exaudisti mihi quoque spem dedisti Preces meae non sunt dignae sed tu bonus fac benigne ne perenni cremer igne Inter oves locum praesta et ab haedis 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 Lacrimosa dies illa qua resurget ex favilla judicandus homo reus Huic ergo parce Deus pie Jesu Domine dona eis requiem Amen
