Here's a Signed Exact English version of it.

The signing along with the song is actually quite evocative.  I guess signed poetry is sort of like dance.

Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come

Oh I love this piece.  I'm pretty sure my friends (and at the moment coworkers) would prefer I not wail along with it, though.

Jessye Norman sings the Sanctus from Gounod's Messe solenelle, the most beautiful song I know. My dad absolutely loved this music, although I doubt he ever heard Norman.

This is an amazing performance at Notre Dame. Not sure of the year. Wish that people who posted to YouTube were better bibliographers.

A beautiful, underappreciated and underperformed piece of music, the Gounod.  I sang it the first year with my choir.  Last movement, the Domine salvam, was a case of French soldiers forced to use their voices as cannon fodder for the glory of the Emperor.  I could barely speak for the next day and a half.

It was worth it.

I have to read up on Gounod again. One thing I don't understand: why is that mass not called a requiem mass? He called it Messe Solennelle, and it's also called the St Cecilia Mass, St Cecilia's Day being quite a cheerful thing, but doesn't the form follow the same form as for a requiem?

The "Dies irae" also thrills me, chills me. Wondrous piece of music.

Pundits in the Robot-ocracy.  Good social satire, and hilarious.

The Leonard Cohen discussion > Jennifer Warnes' Famous Blue Raincoat album > Alison Krause > Raising Sand, the latter's duet album with Robert Plant.

It looks/sounds very good.  I might even buy the CD.

That Dies irae you speak of, it's from some other piece of music, yes?  Not from the Messe Solennelle de Ste. Cecile?  

I mean, that's got a Crucifixus.  And it's got an Agnus Dei.  Both gorgeous, soul-shaking things, both of them.  But no Dies irae.  

At least not in my version. :innocent
