“For death begins with life's first breath And life begins at touch of death” - John Oxenham (William Arthur Dunkerley)

For Song Saturday today a sublime aria from the Gabriel Fauré “Requiem” sung faultlessly by Cecilia Bartoli. It is the “Pie Jesu” where the singer prays to Jesus to give rest to the souls of the departed.

Pie Jesu Domine,
Dona eis requiem.
Pie Jesu Domine,
Dona eis requiem sempiternam.

Kind Lord Jesus,
Grant them rest.
Kind Lord Jesus,
Grant them everlasting rest.

  1. So beautiful!
    Funny because I thought about publishing a stained glass today and thought about a picture that would have the effect the one you published.
    Now I don't need to do it. :)
    Thank you!
