Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Te decet hymnus Deus in Sion,
et tibi reddetur votum in Jerusalem:
exaudi orationem meam,
ad te omnis caro veniet.
Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Kyrie eleison.
Christe eleison.
Kyrie eleison.
[2] Graduale
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
In memoria aeterna erit justus:
ab auditione mala non timebit.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine.
Sequentia
[3] Dies irae
Dies irae, dies illa,
solvet saeclum in favilla,
teste David cum Sybilla.
Quantus tremor est futurus,
quando judex est venturus
cuncta stricte discussurus!
[4] Tuba mirum
Tuba mirum spargens sonum,
CD 1: Part I
[1] Introit: Requiem aeternam – Kyrie
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
A hymn, O God, is fitting for you in Sion
and a vow shall be paid to you in Jerusalem:
hear my prayer,
to you all flesh shall come.
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
Lord have mercy.
Christ have mercy.
Lord have mercy.
[2] Gradual
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
The just will be remembered for ever:
he will not fear from evil report.
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord.
Sequence
[3] Dies irae
Day of wrath, that dreadful day,
the world will melt in ashes
as David and the Sybil foretold.
What trembling there will be
when the judge shall come
dealing strictly with everything.
[4] Tuba mirum
The trumpet scattering wonderful sound

Takeaways from Monday
Ultimately, it is the artists’ responsibility to document
creators and contributions
Be consistent with spelling, diligent with data entry
Metadata is the text and numbers that uniquely describe
and identify your music
Presented at
Future of Music Policy Summit
October 27-28, 2014 | Washington, DC Table of contents
Metadata is increasingly important. It underlies
discoverability, proper attribution and payment across an
increasing number of platforms
