Teddy Abrams Music Director An unusually versatile musician, Teddy Abrams is the widely-acclaimed Music Director of the Louisville Orchestra and Music Director of the Britt Festival Orchestra. An advocate for the power of music, Abrams has fostered inter-disciplinary collaborations with organizations such as the Louisville Ballet, the Center for Interfaith Relations, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the Speed Art Museum and the Folger Shakespeare Library. His rap-opera, The Greatest: Muhammad Ali, premiered in 2017, celebrating Louisville’s hometown hero. Teddy makes his debut with the National Symphony Orchestra in the 2018-19 season in a program built around a commission by Lera Auerbach, and he appears with the Utah, Wichita, Eugene and Elgin Symphonies. He celebrates Leonard Bernstein’s centenary with an all-Bernstein program at the Kennedy Center on what would have been his 100th birthday. Recent guest conducting highlights include engagements with the Los Angeles Philharmonic; the San Francisco, Houston, Milwaukee, Vancouver, Colorado and Phoenix Symphonies; Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra; and the Florida Orchestra. He has enjoyed a longstanding relationship with the Indianapolis Symphony and recently conducted them with Time for Three for a PBS special. He served as Assistant Conductor of the Detroit Symphony from 2012 to 2014. From 2008 to 2011, Abrams was the Conducting Fellow and Assistant Conductor of the New World Symphony (NWS). He has conducted the NWS in Miami Beach, in Washington, D.C. and at Carnegie Hall, and recently returned to conduct the NWS on subscription with Joshua Bell as soloist. An accomplished pianist and

clarinetist, Abrams has appeared as a soloist with a number of orchestras— including play-conducting the Ravel Piano Concerto with the Fort Worth Symphony and the Jacksonville Symphony—and has performed chamber music with the St. Petersburg String Quartet, Menahem Pressler, Gilbert Kalish, Time for Three and John Adams, in addition to annual appearances at the Olympic Music Festival. Abrams was a protégé of Michael Tilson Thomas from the age of eleven, and studied conducting with Otto-Werner Mueller and Ford Lallerstedt at the Curtis Institute of Music, and with David Zinman at the Aspen Music Festival; he was the youngest conducting student ever accepted at both institutions. Abrams is also an award-winning composer and a passionate educator. His 2009 Education Concerts with the New World Symphony (featuring the world premiere of one of Abrams’ own orchestral works) were webcast to hundreds of schools throughout South Florida. Abrams performed as a keyboardist with the Philadelphia Orchestra, won the 2007 Aspen Composition Contest, and was the Assistant Conductor of the YouTube Symphony at Carnegie Hall in 2009. He has held residencies at the La Mortella music festival in Ischia, Italy, and at the American Academy in Berlin. Teddy was a proud member of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra for seven seasons and graduated from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music with a bachelor of music, having studied piano with Paul Hersh.



BOB BERNHARDT Principal Pops Conductor This season, Bob Bernhardt begins his 37th consecutive year with the Louisville Orchestra as Assistant Conductor, then as Associate Conductor, then Principal Guest Conductor of Kentucky Opera, and is now in his 22nd season as Principal Pops Conductor. For nearly four decades, he’s been a constant presence with the LO and continues to bring his unique combination of easy style, infectious enthusiasm and wonderful musicianship to the city and orchestra he loves. Bernhardt is concurrently Principal Pops Conductor of the Grand Rapids Symphony in Michigan and Principal Pops Conductor and Music Director Emeritus of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera. He previously spent 19 seasons as Music Director and is now in his 26th year with the company. He is also an Artist-in-Residence at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. Previously, he was Music Director and conductor of the Amarillo Symphony and the Tucson Symphony, and Principal Conductor and Artistic Director of the Rochester Philharmonic. In the past decade, Bernhardt has made his conducting debuts with the Baltimore Symphony, Dallas Symphony, Houston Symphony, Cincinnati Pops, New Jersey Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Florida Orchestra, Grand Rapids Symphony, Fort Worth Symphony and Santa Barbara Symphony, all of which were rewarded with return engagements. He has a continuing thirteen-year relationship with the Edmonton Symphony, conducting there several times each season, and as Festival Conductor for their Labor Day Festival, Symphony Under the Sky. He 6

made his debut with the Boston Pops in 1992 at the invitation of John Williams and has been a frequent guest there ever since. Recently, he returned to the podiums in Vail, Boston, Nashville, Detroit, Edmonton, Florida, Grand Rapids, Las Vegas, Baltimore, Santa Barbara, Portland, Louisiana and Rochester; made his debut with the Utah Symphony and Calgary Philharmonic; and will conduct the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa for his first time this season. His professional opera career began with the Birmingham Opera in 1979, two years before he joined the Louisville Orchestra. He worked with Kentucky Opera for 18 consecutive seasons; and with Chattanooga Opera, he conducted dozens of fully staged productions in a genre he adores. Born in Rochester, New York, he holds a master’s degree from the University of Southern California’s School of Music, where he studied with Daniel Lewis. He is also a Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude graduate of Union College in Schenectady, New York, where he was an Academic All-American baseball player. (While not all the research is in, Bernhardt believes that he is the only conductor in the history of music to be invited to spring training with the Kansas City Royals. After four days, they suggested to him a life in music.) His two children, Alex and Charlotte, live in Seattle. He and his wife, Nora, live in Chattanooga, Tennessee.


MUSICIAN HIGHLIGHT James Recktenwald Assistant Principal Trumpet, Lynne A. Redgrave Chair

At 6:00 a.m., in the middle of August several years ago, I received the call from my oldest brother that Dad had just passed. My brother spent the night at Dad’s hospice bedside so Mom could rest at the home she and dad had shared together for more than fifty years. Mom was waiting on the porch when I arrived to take her to Dad. As we pulled out of the subdivision, on the opposite side of the road, an unpretentious white peacock stood in the grass, with its feathers tucked tightly to its body. Never before had I seen a white peacock near my childhood home. I rolled down the window to get a better look through the thin fog. The still air was filled with a peaceful silence as the white peacock was poised and quiescent. I was surprised to later discover religious associations of the white peacock. One association of particular note is the symbolic representation of the white peacock to the death, resurrection and eternal life of Jesus Christ. This symbolism helps one to remember the dead and to celebrate their life, in the hope that the deceased too might have eternal life. This same sentiment is portrayed in the text of Mozart’s Requiem, in the Hostias, the second part of the Requiem’s Offertorium: Hostias Hostias et preces tibi, Domine laudis offerimus tu suscipe pro animabus illis, quaram hodie memoriam facimus. Fac eas, Domine, de morte transire ad vitam. Quam olim Abrahae promisisti et semini ejus.

Lord, in praise we offer you sacrifices and prayers, accept them on behalf of those whom we remember this day: Lord, make them pass from death to life, as once you promised to Abraham and his descendants.

The soulful journey of resurrection, that one “pass from death to life” as symbolized by the white peacock, is perhaps a comforting thought as we listen to Mozart’s Requiem in remembrance today. Needless to say, I did return to visit with the owner of the white peacock! 8

Program Notes Claudio Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 (“Vespers of the Blessed Virgin”) Claudio Monteverdi was born in Cremona, Italy, in 1567 and died in Venice in 1643. Monteverdi published this work in 1610; the circumstances of its first performance are unknown. He may have composed it as an “audition” piece as he sought a position in Rome or Venice. The John Kilpatrick edition performed here calls for six solo singers, a chorus divided into as many as eight parts, 2 recorders, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, divided violins, violas, and cellos, and continuo. Claudio Monteverdi’s life spanned the turn of the sixteenth century to the seventeenth and likewise the evolution of the Renaissance period of music into the Baroque. He is often called the “bridge” between those two eras, but of course it’s not quite as simple as that. His earliest works were firmly in the Renaissance style, but as he matured as a composer he was open to the innovations going on around him: the increased use of dissonance and chromaticism, of melody-andaccompaniment rather than the traditional layered textures of multiple melodic lines (known as polyphony), the desire to express the emotional content of a text in the music, and many others. He never claimed to have invented any

of these things, nor did he consider them a radical departure from past practices. To Monteverdi, this new style was complimentary to the old, and he reached for whatever technique that suited him at the moment. As it happens, Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 deploys all the musical styles and techniques he had at his disposal. Vespers is one of the canonical hours in the Christian church that established specific times of the day for prayer, a practice that can be traced back to Judaism. In Monteverdi’s time it was the Catholic church, but later many of the other Christian sects brought the idea along with them under various names. Vespers is the name for the evening canonical hour. The Catholic vespers service has changed over the centuries, and what it contains will vary according to the liturgical calendar. It will usually include an opening responsorial psalm, a number of other psalms, hymns, scriptural readings, and the Magnificat; all these may be followed by a Benediction. Monteverdi’s setting is monumental, taking as much as ninety minutes for a complete performance, and demanding six or seven vocal soloists, an extremely capable choir divided into as many as eight parts, and what would have been a large orchestra for the time. Among its 13 movements, Monteverdi included settings of non-liturgical texts, two versions of the Magnificat, and what amounts to a purely instrumental movement accompanied by a plainchant. These quirks have led some scholars to believe that the Vespers of 1610 may not have been intended by the composer to be performed straight through as it



appears in the printed score. In order to provide a satisfying portion of the Vespers of 1610—but without all of its heavenly length— Maestro Teddy Abrams has selected the following movements: Domine ad adiuvandum. The Vespers begins with a plainsong melody sung over a held chord, interspersed with a repeating orchestral interlude. Dixit Dominus. Psalm 109. For soloists, choir and orchestra, with a fugal texture. Laudate, pueri, Dominum. Psalm 112. For soloists, choir and orchestra, an extended movement that deploys the choir antiphonally. Laetatus sum. Psalm 121. For soloists, choir and orchestra, with stunning vocal passages for the soloists. Nisi Dominus. Psalm 126. For choir


and orchestra, this contains both polyphonic and chordal textures in alternation, and an antiphonal choir. Lauda Jerusalem, Dominum. Psalm 147. For choir and orchestra with the choir divided into three. A joyous, intricately designed movement. Magnificat. For soloists, choir and orchestra. This magnificent conclusion to the Vespers is in twelve sections, setting the traditional Marian hymn from the Gospel of Luke (1: 46-55).


Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 Translations Deus in Adjutorium. Ps. 69(70), 1 Deus, in adjutorium meum intende: Domine, ad adjuvandum me festina. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen. Allelujah.

Make haste, O God, to deliver me: make haste, O Lord, to help me. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, without end. Amen. Alleluia.

Dixit Dominus. Ps. 109(110) Dixit Dominus Domino meo: Sede a dextris meis: donec ponam inimicos tuos scabellum pedum tuorum. Virgam virtutis tuæ emittet Dominus ex Sion: dominare in medio inimicorum tuorum. Tecum principium in die virtutis tuæ in splendoribus sanctorum: ex utero ante luciferum genui te. Juravit Dominus, et non pœnitebit eum: tu es sacerdos in æternum secundum ordinem Melchisedech. Dominus a dextris tuis confregit in die iræ suæ reges. Judicabit in nationibus, implebit ruinas: conquassabit capita in terra multorum. De torrente in via bibet: propterea exaltabit caput. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.

The Lord said to my Lord, sit at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The Lord shall send out the rod of thy strength from Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. At thy beginning in thy day of glory in the splendour of the holy places, before the first light I begat thee. The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent: thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedech. The Lord at thy right hand shall destroy kings in the day of his wrath. He shall judge among the nations, fill them with the dead, and smash heads in many lands. He shall drink of the brook in the way: thus shall he raise his head. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, without end. Amen.



Laudate Pueri Domine. Ps. 112(113) Laudate, pueri, Dominum: laudate nomen Domini. Sit nomen Domini benedictum, ex hoc nunc, et usque in sæculum. A solis ortu usque ad occasum, laudabile nomen Domini. Excelsus super omnes gentes Dominus, et super cœlos gloria ejus. Quis sicut Dominus Deus noster, qui in altis habitat, et humilia respicit in cœlo et in terra? Suscitans a terra inopem, et de stercore erigens pauperem: Ut collocet eum cum principibus, cum principibus populi sui. Qui habitare facit sterilem in domo, matrem filiorum lætantem. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.

Praise the Lord, ye servants: praise the name of the Lord. Blessed be the name of the Lord, from this time forth for evermore. From the rising to the setting of the sun, the Lord’s name be praised. The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high, yet respecteth humbly what is in heaven and earth? He raiseth the simple from the dust, and lifteth the poor from the mire. That he may set him with princes, even the princes of his people. Who maketh the barren woman to keep house, a joyful mother of children. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, without end. Amen.

Lætatus Sum. Ps.121(122) Lætatus sum in his, quæ dicta sunt mihi: in domum Domini ibimus. Stantes erant pedes nostri, in atriis tuis, Jerusalem. Jerusalem, quæ ædificatur ut civitas: cujus participatio ejus in idipsum. Illuc enim ascenderunt tribus, tribus Domini testimonium Isræl ad confitendum nomini Domini. Quia illic sederunt sedes in judicio, sedes super domum David. Rogate quæ ad pacem sunt Jerusalem: et abundantia diligentibus te. Fiat pax in virtute tua: et abundantia in turribus tuis. Propter fratres meos, et proximos meos, loquebar pacem de te: Propter domum Domini Dei nostri, quæsivi bona tibi. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.


I was glad when they said to me: we will go into the house of the Lord. Our feet shall stand in thy gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem, that is built as a city that is at one with itself. For thither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, to the testimony of Isræl, to give thanks to the name of the Lord. For there are the seats of judgement, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and plenty within thy palaces. For my brethren, and my companions, I will seek peace for thee. For the house of the Lord our God, I will seek to do thee good. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, without end. Amen.


Nisi Dominus Ps. 126(127) Nisi Dominus ædificaverit domum, in vanum laboraverunt qui ædificant eum. Nisi Dominus custodierit civitatem, frustra vigilat qui custodit eam. Vanum est vobis ante lucem surgere: surgite postquam sederitis, qui manducatis panem doloris. Cum dederit dilectis suis somnum: ecce, hæreditas Domini filii: merces, fructus ventris. Sicut sagittæ in manu potentis: ita filii excussorum. Beatus vir qui implevit desiderium suum ex ipsis: non confundetur cum loquetur inimicis suis in porta. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen Lauda Jerusalem Ps. 147 Lauda, Jerusalem, Dominum: lauda Deum tuum, Sion. Quoniam confortavit seras portarum tuarum: benedixit filiis tuis in te. Qui posuit fines tuos pacem: et adipe frumenti satiat te. Qui emittit eloquium suum terræ: velociter currit sermo ejus. Qui dat nivem sicut lanam: nebulam sicut cinerem spargit. Mittit crystallum suam sicut buccellas: ante faciem frigoris ejus quis sustinebit? Emittet verbum suum, et liquefaciet ea: flabit spiritus ejus, et fluent aquæ. Qui annunciat verbum suum Jacob: justitias et judicia sua Isræl. Non fecit taliter omni nationi: et judicia sua non manifestavit eis. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.

Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain who build it. Except the Lord keep the city, he watcheth in vain who keepeth it. It is vain for you to rise before dawn: Rise later, ye who have eaten the bread of sorrows; When he will give sleep to his chosen. Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord; a reward, the fruit of the womb. As arrows in the hands of the mighty, thus are the children of outcasts. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them: they shall not be ashamed when they confront their enemies in the way. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, without end. Amen.

Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion. For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee. He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest wheat. He sendeth his commandment to the earth; his word runneth swiftly. He giveth snow like wool; he scattereth hoar frost like ashes. He casteth forth his ice like morsels; before his cold who can stand? He sendeth out his word, and melteth them; his spirit blows, and the waters flow. He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and judgements to Isræl. He hath not dealt so with any nation; and his judgments he hath not made manifest. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, without end. Amen.



Magnificat Luc. 1,46-55 1. Magnificat anima mea Dominum: 2. et exultavit spiritus meus in Deo salutari meo. 3. Quia respexit humilitatem ancillæ suæ: ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes. 4. Quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est: et sanctum nomen ejus. 5. Et misericordia ejus a progenie in progenies timentibus eum. 6. Fecit potentiam in brachio suo: dispersit superbos mente cordis sui. 7. Deposuit potentes de sede, et exaltavit humiles. 8. Esurientes implevit bonis: et divites dimisit inanes. 9. Suscepit Isræl puerum suum, recordatus misericordiæ suæ. 10. Sicut locutus est ad patres nostros, Abraham et semini ejus in sæcula. 11. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. 12. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.


My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my saviour. For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden: for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done great things to me, and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud of heart. He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the lowly. He hath filled the hungry with good things and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath sustained Isræl his servant, remembering his mercy. As he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed for ever. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, without end. Amen.


Wolfgang Amadè Mozart Requiem, K. 626 Wolfgang Amadè Mozart (he never used “Amadeus” except when making a joke) was born in Salzburg, Austria, in 1756 and died in Vienna in 1791. He began his Requiem in 1791 but did not live to finish it. The score calls for soprano, alto, tenor, and bass soloists, chorus, 2 basset horns, 2 bassoons, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, organ and strings. Although Peter Shaffer’s film Amadeus is excellent entertainment (and has probably brought the music of Mozart to the attention of more people than anything else), there is no need to embellish the story of the Mozart Requiem to achieve high drama. The facts of the tale are compelling in their own right. The late 1780s were years of disappointment for Mozart, who found that his formerly receptive Vienna had turned away from him. His commissions were fewer and he found his publishers turning down his offerings as “too difficult.” Though Mozart was never really poor, he continued to maintain an elegant lifestyle in spite of his waning income. As a result he usually found himself in debt and repeatedly seeking loans from friends and supporters. Society in Vienna was fickle, always looking for something new and different; Mozart had become passé. “A mysterious stranger cloaked in gray” appeared on Mozart’s doorstep in July of 1791 to commission a Requiem Mass. He was the emissary of one Count Walsegg, who wanted a Requiem in

memory of his recently deceased wife. Walsegg, who fancied himself a composer, was in the habit of secretly commissioning works that he would later pass off as his own. The stranger demanded anonymity for his master and paid a large sum in advance. Mozart accepted the commission and began work at once, having promised delivery in four weeks. Work on the Requiem was interrupted almost immediately by a commission to write an opera for the coronation of Emperor Leopold II in Prague. Mozart started at once on La Clemenza di Tito, for time was short. On September 30, as Mozart, his wife Constanze, and his pupil Franz Xaver Süssmayr were about to board their coach for the journey to Prague, the mysterious stranger appeared once more, asking what was to become of the Requiem. Mozart apologized, explained his delay, and said he would resume work on the Requiem as soon as he returned. This satisfied the stranger. When Mozart returned to Vienna, it was to a flurry of activity for the rehearsals and first performances of The Magic Flute. Mozart also worked on the Clarinet Concerto and other pieces while at the same time tackling the Requiem in earnest. He suffered increasing ill health, and by his own account he frequently worked himself to exhaustion. By late November, Mozart was bedridden with his final illness, and he came to believe that he was composing the Requiem for himself. Three days before he died he was appointed by the Emperor to be the music director of St. Stephen’s in Vienna, a position that would have brought him financial stability. The irony was not lost on Mozart: “Now that I am appointed to a situation where I could please myself in my writings, and I feel I could do



something worthy, I must die.” At fifty-five minutes past midnight on December 5th, Mozart was dead. Scholars have tried to deduce what exactly his illness was but none agree on the diagnosis; it is sufficient to know that he died of natural causes. (It was not at all unusual for a fatal illness to strike a person of Mozart’s age, nor was it unusual for a man of his social class to have been buried in a mass grave.) Constanze, saddled with the couple’s debts, wanted the Requiem completed so she would not have to return the sizable fee already received (and likely, spent). After others had attempted and failed, she gave the score to Süssmayr to complete. We shall never know how much of the Requiem’s completion is attributable to notes and instructions given to Süssmayr and how much was the student’s own work. Beethoven, having studied the completed Requiem, is said to have exclaimed that whoever had done the completion was surely “another Mozart.” This Süssmayr was not. Süssmayr never equaled, let alone surpassed, the work attributed to him in the Requiem at any other time in his life. His deficiencies as a composer have led most scholars to assume that Süssmayr was informed by sketches and extensive oral instruction from Mozart, notably in the Benedictus and perhaps also the Agnus Dei. Many consider the Sanctus to be the weakest of the “missing” movements, and it may have been more or less Süssmayr’s own composition.


It has become fashionable nowadays to fault the work of Süssmayr, though without his completion we may never have known the Requiem at all. Süssmayr was at best a second-rate composer, but he is known to have been with Mozart in his final days, to have rehearsed the completed parts with Mozart, and to have received instructions as to the work’s completion. Mozart’s Requiem simultaneously presents our dual responses to death: the forbidding awe on the one hand and the sublime consolation on the other. This juxtaposition is never clearer than in the first line of the Confutatis: “When the damned are cast away and consigned to the searing flames” is set to terrifying, almost demonic string writing. When the same line continues at voca me, “call me to be with the blessed,” voices and instruments combine in a plea for mercy. That this music is so completely evocative of the text is evidence that Mozart must have felt this duality in the face of his own end. The Requiem is one of those rare works with the capacity to move us upon each hearing no matter how many times we have heard it before. Its eloquence and tragedy live deep within the notes and text; the mysteries of its inception and its completion are entirely surpassed by the mysteries of its power over us. ~ Mark Rohr Questions or comments?


Mozart Requiem Introitus Requiem aeternam dona ets, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ets. Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Sion, et tibi reddetur votum in Jerusalem. Exaudi orationem meam, ad te omnis caro veniet. Requiem aeternam dona ets, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ets.

Grant them eternal rest, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine on them. Thou, O God, art praised in Sion, and unto Thee shall the vow be performed in Jerusalem. Hear my prayer, unto Thee shall all flesh come. Grant them eternal rest, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine on them.

Kyrie Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison.  Kyrie eleison.

Lord have mercy upon us. Christ have mercy upon us. Lord have mercy upon us.

Sequentia 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.

Day of wrath, that day Will dissolve the earth in ashes As David and the Sibyl bear witness What dread there will be When the Judge shall come To judge all things strictly. A trumpet, spreading a wondrous sound Through the graves of all lands, Will drive mankind before the throne.

Mors slopebit et natora Cum resurget creatura Judicanti responsura. Liber scriptus proferetur In quo totum continetur, Unde mundus judicetur.

Death and nature shall be astonished When all creation rises again To answer to the Judge. A book, written in, will be brought forth In which is contained everything that is, Out of which the world shall be judged.

Judex ergo cum sedebit Quidquid latet apparebit, Nil inultum remanebit.

When therefore the Judge takes His seat Whatever is hidden will reveal itself. Nothing will remain unavenged. 

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus, Quem patronum togaturus, Cum vix justus sit securus?

What then shall I say, wretch that I am, What advocate entreat to speak for me, When even the righteous may hardly be secure?

Rex tremendae majestatis, Qui salvandos salvas gratis, Salve me, fons pietatis. Recordare, Jesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae, Ne me perdas ilia die. 

King of awful majesty, Who freely savest the redeemed, Save me, O fount of goodness. Remember, blessed Jesu, That I am the cause of Thy pilgrimage, Do not forsake me on that day.



Quaerens me sedisti lassus, Redemisti crucem passus, Tamus labor non sit cassus.

Seeking me Thou didst sit down weary, Thou didst redeem me, suffering death on the cross. Let not such toil be in vain. 

Juste judex ultionis Donum fac remissionis Ante diem rationis.

Just and avenging Judge, Grant remission Before the day of reckoning.

lngemisco tamquam reus, Culpa rubet vultus meus, Supplicanti parce, Deus. Qui Mariam absolvisti Et latronem exaudisti, Mihi quoque spem dedisti. Preces meae non sum dignae, Sed tu bonus fac benigne, Ne perenni cremet igne.

I groan like a guilty man. Guilt reddens my face.  Spare a suppliant, O God. Thou who didst absolve Mary Magdalene And didst hearken to the thief, To me also hast Thou given hope. My prayers are not worthy, But Thou in Thy merciful goodness grant That I burn not in everlasting fire. 

Inter oves locurn praesta, Et ab haedis me sequestra, Statuens in parle dextra.

Place me among Thy sheep And separate me from the goats, Setting me on Thy right hand.

Confutatis maledictis Flammis acribus addictis, Voca me cum benedictis.

When the accursed have been confounded And given over to the bitter flames, Call me with the blessed.

Oro supplex et acclinis, Cor contritum quasi cinis, Gere curam mei finis.

I pray in supplication on my knees. My heart contrite as the dust, Safeguard my fate. 

Lacrimosa dies ilia Qua resurget ex favilla Judicandus homo reus. Huic ergo parce, Deus, Pie Jesu Domine, Dona els requiem.

Mournful that day When from the dust shall rise Guilty man to be judged. Therefore spare him, O God.  Merciful Jesu, Lord Grant them rest.

Offertorium Domine, Jesu Christe, Rex gloriae, libera animas omniurn fidelium defunctorum de poenis inferni, et de prof undo lacu: libera cas de ore leonis, ne absorbeat eas tartarus, ne cadant in obscurum, sed signifer sanctus Michael repraesentet eas in lucem sanctam, quam olim Abrahae promisisti et semini ejus.


Lord Jesus Christ, King of glory, deliver the souls of all the faithful departed from the pains of hell and from the bottomless pit. Deliver them from the lion’s mouth.  Neither let them fall into darkness nor the black abyss swallow them up.  And let St. Michael, Thy standard-bearer, lead them into the holy light which once Thou didst promise to Abraham and his seed. 


Hostias et preces, tibi, Domine, laudis offerimus: tu suscipe pro animabus illis, quarum hodie memoriam facimus: fac eas, Domine, de morte Iransire ad vitam, quam olim Abrahae promisisti et semini ejus.

We offer unto Thee this sacrifice of prayer and praise. Receive it for those souls whom today we commemorate.  Allow them, O Lord, to cross from death into the life which once Thou didst promise to Abraham and his seed.

Sanctus Sanctus. Sanctus, Sanctus, Dominus Deus Sabaoth! Pleni suni coeli et terra gloria tua. Osanna in excelsis.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Sabaoth. Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory.  Hosanna in the highest.

Benedictus Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

Blessed is He who cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Agnus Dei Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona eis requiem. Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona eis requiem sempiternam.

Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant them rest. Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant them everlasting rest.

Communio Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine, cum sanctis mis in aeternum, quia pius es. Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis, cum sanetis tuis in aeternum, quia plus es.

May eternal light shine on them, O Lord. with Thy saints for ever, because Thou art merciful.  Grant the dead eternal rest, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine on them, with Thy saints for ever, because Thou are merciful.

What happens when eight of Canada’s most in-demand musicians and singers gather together out of a common love for one of the most successful pop/rock groups of all time? Brass Transit—a dynamic, crowdpleasing, studio-tight powerhouse and the world’s foremost CHICAGO tribute! Brass Transit was formed in 2008 and brought together eight of Canada’s most talented, accomplished and award-winning players. Their sole purpose was to pay tribute to the decades-long, multiplatinum songbook of CHICAGO. Since then, the band has toured North America steadily, dazzling audiences with flawless performances and spectacular attention to detail. Hits like “Saturday In The Park,” “25 or 6 To 4,” “If You Leave Me Now,” “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day” and “Beginnings” have left crowds in awe, evoking multiple standing ovations and comments like “Spine-Tingling!” “Brought me back to my youth!” and “Perfect in every detail!”

Brass Transit goes far beyond just imitating the songs; they embody the music. They recently produced their first (self-titled) album, taking songs by other top artists from the seventies and recording them with horns in the CHICAGO style. The result is a fresh approach to some of the greatest hits of the era. They also recently scored their show for full symphony orchestra with original arrangements that are truly spellbinding and have released a second CD of these hits. Brass Transit will bring you back to the most memorable times of your life. Get ready to sing along!
