perusal score

Pange, lingua, gloriosi [Sing, my tongue, of the glorious]               
          What has become of the young and old men? 
Corporis mysterium, [body and its mystery;]               
           and what of the women and children? 
Sanguinisque pretiosi, [and of the precious Blood,]
quem in mundi pretium [by which the world is redeemed,]               
           They are alive and well somewhere…              
           The smallest sprout show there really is no death. 
fructus ventris generosi [the fruit of the generous womb,]
Rex effudit Gentium.[a ruler given for all people.]              
[St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) for the Feast of Corpus Christi]

                                    Slava visnich Bogu [Glory to God in the highest]
                                    I na zyemli mir [and on earth peace]

                                    vchelovyetsech blagovoleniye [toward people of good will]

                                                (Znamenny chant – The Great Doxology)

               All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses
               And to die is different from what anyone supposed, and luckier.                       
               [Walt Whitman– Song of Myself (6: 123-130) from Leaves of Grass (3rd edition)]
