John Tavener: Song for Athene | Westminster Cathedral Choir

Song for Athene

Lyrics.

“Alleluia, Alleluia.
May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
Alleluia, Alleluia.
Remember me O Lord, when you come into your kingdom.
Alleluia, Alleluia.
Give rest O Lord to your handmaid, who has fallen asleep.
Alleluia, Alleluia.
The Choir of Saints have found the well-spring of life and door of paradise.
Alleluia, Alleluia.
Life a shadow and a dream.
Alleluia, Alleluia.
Weeping at the grave creates the song Alleluia.
Come, enjoy rewards and crowns I have prepared for you.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.”

Perfect.

Thomas Cooper Gotch. Alleluia.
Thomas Cooper Gotch. Alleluia.
