In Paradisum (Fauré)

In memory of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, 15 April 2013

In paradisum deducant te Angeli;
in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres,
et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem.
Chorus angelorum te suscipiat,
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.

May angels lead you into paradise;
upon your arrival, may the martyrs receive you 
and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem. 
May the ranks of angels receive you, 
and with Lazarus, once the poor man, may you have eternal rest.

Historical Information: In Paradisum

Music: from the Requiem, by Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924)
