Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791): Lacrimosa (K626) – Connor Burrowes

I’ve no idea how many performances of the Lacrimosa from Mozart’s Requiem K626 that I’ve heard over the years – a lot. But some performances of it stand out in my mind, one of those performances is this one by Connor Burrowes on the Boys Air Choir album "Requiem". Enjoy :-)


Text & Translation: Lacrimosa

Lacrimosa dies illa,
qua resurget ex favilla
judicandus homo reus.
Huic ergo parce, Deus,
pie Jesu Domine,
dona eis requiem. Amen.

That day of tears and mourning,
when from the ashes shall arise,
all humanity to be judged.
Spare us by your mercy, Lord,
gentle Lord Jesus,
grant them eternal rest. Amen.
