Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Sara Brightman “Pie Jesu”

It is time for our usual midday Wednesday feature to make its triumphant return.

Sarah Brightman is an accomplished classical crossover singer, best known for her performances in Broadway musicals and her duets with tenor Andrea Bocelli. In this relatively early performance in 1982, she does a selection of Webber's "Requiem," with a variation of he same in Faure's "Requiem."

Pie Jesu, (4x)
    Merciful Jesus,
Qui tollis peccata mundi
    Who takes away the sins of the world,
Dona eis requiem. (2x)
    Grant them rest.

Agnus Dei, (4x)
    Lamb of God,
Qui tollis peccata mundi,
    Who takes away the sins of the world,
Dona eis requiem (2x)
    Grant them rest
Sempiternam. (2x)

I don't really like Sarah Brightman, but I do like the version Jackie Evancko (sp?) sung on America's Got Talent... it made me cry!
