II. Offertorium (James Harper, baritone)

Domine Jesu Christe, Rex gloriae, 
libera animas defunctorum

Libera eas de ore leonis, 
ne absorbeat eas tartarus, 
ne cadant in obscurum. 
Hostias et preces tibi, 
Domine, laudis offerimus. 
Tu suscipe pro animabus illis 
quarum hodie memoriam facimus. 
Fac eas, Domine, 
de morte transire ad vitam, 
quam olim Abrahae promisisti, 
et semini eius.

VI. Libera me (James Harper, baritone)

Libera me, Domine,

Tremens factus sum ego, et timeo 
dum discussio venerit, 
atque ventura ira. 
Dies illa, dies irae, 
calamitatis et miseriae, 
dies magna et amara valde. 
Requiem aeternam, dona eis, Domine, 
et lux perpetua luceat eis.

In paradisum deducant te angeli, 
in tuo adventu 
suscipiant te martyres, 
et perducant te 
in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem. 
Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, 
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere 
aeternam habeas requiem.
