Music track from Bora Yoon’s Sunken Catherdral (2014)

04  In paradisum (Into paradise)
in living memory of my father Peter Yoon (1945~1993)
‘In paradisum’ is an antiphon chant from the traditional Latin liturgy of the Western Church.  Found at the end of some Requiem masses, ‘In paradisum’ is traditionally sung by the choir as the body is being taken out of the church, as the soul transitions from one life to the next.
In paradisum deducant te Angeli;
in tuo adventu suscipiant te Martyres,
et perducant te
in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem.
Chorus Angelorum te suscipiat,
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere
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 chorus of angels receive you
and with Lazarus once poor
may you have eternal rest
