Dies Irae Printed Scores
This heart-pounding setting of the Dies Irae is appropriate for developing or advanced choirs.
The Dies Irae (Day of Wrath) describes the final judgment: the last trumpet summoning souls before the throne of God, where the saved will be delivered and the unsaved cast into eternal flames.
Day of wrath! O Day of mourning!
See fulfilled the prophets’ warning,
Heaven and Earth in ashes burning.
Oh, what fear man’s bosom rendeth,
When from heaven the Judge descendeth,
On whose sentence all dependeth.
