Rest in Peace, All Souls

Though Johann Georg Jacobi’s original text is nine stanzas long and is a true litany of those departed this shorter version by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Gerald Moore captures, for me at least, more perfectly than any other the emotion of Schubert’s prayer for the departed.

All souls rest in peace.


On this day in 1936: The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is established.
