A Requiem for Aurora

At 5:00 am this morning I awoke to the news of the horrific shootings that claimed so many lives and inflicted pain and suffering on scores more. All of us at ABT are saddened over last night’s tragedy in Aurora, a community where I lived for a brief period during my childhood. Our prayers go out to all who were affected. I share with you the Introit of Mozart’s Requiem Mass in D Minor.

Grant them eternal rest, Lord,
and let perpetual light shine on them.
You are praised, God, in Zion,
and homage will be paid to You in Jerusalem.
Hear my prayer,
to You all flesh will come.
Grant them eternal rest, Lord,
and let perpetual light shine on them.
