Latin text :

Regis regum rectissimi
prope est dies domini,
dies irae et vindictae,

tenebrarum et nebulae
diesque mirabilium
tonitruorum fortium,
dies quoque angustiae,
maeroris ac tristitiae.

English text :

Day of the king most righteous,
The day is nigh at hand,
The day of wrath and vengeance,

And darkness on the land.
Day of thick clouds and voices,
Of mighty thundering,
A day of narrow anguish
And bitter sorrowing.

Music John Barry
Latin text research Denis Stevens
