For Four Solo Voices, Chorus, and Orchestra
MOZART died before he could finish the Requiem, which was commissioned by a stranger in 1791, and parts of it (chiefly the last three numbers) were completed by his pupil, Siissmavr.
The items are these (in E. J. Dent s translation) :—
1. Requiem ceternam. 'Grant to Thy departed rest eternal..... 0 hearken unto our supplication..... Show to us Thy mercy, Lord.'
2. Dies irae. ' Day of judgment, day of mourning..... 0 what fears ... when from Heaven the Judge descendeth ! '
3. Tuba mirum (Solo). ' Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth..... All before God's throne it bringeth..... When the Judge His seat attairceth..... Nothing unavenged remainetli.'
4. Rex tremendae. ' Lord of majesty tremendous, free salvation Thou dost send us, save us then, Fount of pity, then befriend us ! '
5. Recordare. 'Lord, remember my salvation caused Thy wondrous incarnation; Save me from damnation..... Hear my weeping and my wailing..... Spp-re me torment, fire undying ... to Thy right hand upraise me.'
6. Confutatis. ' While the accursed are confounded..... Call me then to bliss unbounded.....'
7. Lacrymosa. Day of anguish, day of mourning, From the dust of earth returning, r
Man for judgment must prepare him. Spare, 0 Lord, in, mercy- spare him.
8. Domine Jesu
Christe. 'Lord
Jesus Christ our Saviour ... Save, we beseech Thee, the souls of all Thy faithful departed servants from fire everlasting..... Give to Thine angel charge over them, to keep them in all Thy ways..... '
9. Hostias. 'Lord, receive Thou these our prayers and offerings..... We give to Thee thanks for all those departed ...whom we this day are remembering.....'
10. Sanctus. ' Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Sabaoth ! Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory. Hosanna in the highest! '
11. Benedictus.' He is blessed that cometh in the name of the Lord.'
12. Agnus Dei. ' Lamb of God, that takest away the sinsoof the world, grant them Thine eternal peace, we beseech Thee..... '

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
