"In Paradisum".
Fauré Requiem.
Available on YouTube at

In paradisum deducant te Angeli:
in tuo adventu suscipiant te Martyres,
et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem,
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusalem.

Chorus Angelorum te suscipiat,
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere,
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere
æternam habeas requiem,
æternam habeas requiem.

May The Angels lead you into Paradise,
May The Martyrs receive you in your coming,
And may they guide you into The Holy City, Jerusalem.
May The Choirs of Angels receive you,
And, with Lazarus, once poor, may you have Eternal Rest.
