“Muerte” and “Kaddish” from “La Pasión según San Marcos” by Osvaldo Golijov

Let Spirit sing us together today.

In Aramaic and Spanish, translation as follows:

33. Death

[And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice:]

Jesus (Solo):

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

[And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.]

34. Kaddish

Echo of the cry of death (Women) My God, my God, Why hast thou forsaken me?

Voice from Heaven (Men): Thou art My beloved son, In whom I am well pleased. (Mark 1:11)

Jeremiah (Solo):

Is it nothing to you, all ye who pass by?

Behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow. (Lamentations 1:12)

(Chorus and Solo) (Aramaic)

May His Great name Grow Exalted and Sanctified Amen

May His Great Name Be Blessed Forever and Ever. Blessed, praised, glorified, exalted, extolled, mighty, upraised, and lauded be the Name of the Holy One,

Blessed is He Beyond any blessing and song, praise and consolation that are uttered in the world

And say: Amen
