Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Te decet hymnus Deus, in Sion, et tibi reddetur votum in Ierusalem. Exaudi orationem meam; ad te omnis caro veniet. Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Litaniae Sanctorum (Litany of the Saints)
The Litany of the Saints (Latin, Litania Sanctorum) is a sacred prayer of the Roman Catholic Church. It is a prayer of invocation to the Triune God, and prayers for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Angels and all the martyrs and saints upon whom Christianity was founded.
Veni, Veni, Emmanuel (Oh Come, Oh Come, Emmanuel)
"Veni Veni Emmanuel" (Oh Come, Oh Come, Emmanuel" in English) is one of the most solemn Advent hymns. The melody may perhaps be a old Jewish-Christian Hanuka liturgy chant from the 5th century. It is believed that the final form of the traditional music stems from a 15th Century French processional for Franciscan nuns, but it may also have 8th Century Gregorian origins. . The text is based on the biblical prophecy from Isaiah 7:14 that states that God will give Israel a sign that will be called "Emmanuel" meaning "God With Us".
