and the radiant, heavenly city…

One thing most people may not know about me, is that I am an avid fan of modern avant-garde art music. Today, a friend of mine passed away after a several year fight with cancer. I post this video in hir memory.

The text of this choral work is from the requiem mass titled Lux Aeterna

Lux æterna luceat eis, Domine,
cum sanctis tuis in æternum,
quia pius es.
Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine;
et lux perpetua luceat eis ;
cum Sanctis tuis in æternum,
quia pius es.
