Bobby Hill
I can’t stop humming “Pie Jesu” after watching Bobby Hill’s solo performance of “Requiem” at the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia. The 14 year old soprano was told he would be performing for Pope Francis five minutes before he went on stage! The performance and the lyrics (plus Mark Wahlberg) here:

Pie Jesu,
Qui tollis peccata mundi,
Dona eis requiem.

Pious Jesus,
Who takes away the sins of the world,
Give them rest.

Agnus Dei,
Qui tollis peccata mundi,
Dona eis requiem,
Sempiternam
Requiem.

Lamb of God,
Who takes away the sins of the world,
Give them rest,
Everlasting
Rest.
