I might run out of time. I need two deathbed hours to fit in all my selections.
1.Gott! Welch dunkel hier. Beethoven's Fidelio YouTube
Appropriate to cry out to God about darkness in one's final hour.
2. I entirely agree with rank outsider about a Stabat Mater being quite appropriate and love Pergolesi's, but also love Verdi's in spite of being less devotional. Jiacopone da Todi's impressive poetry indeed a must
3. Verdi's Te Deum also a must since one ought to be quite grateful to the Almighty for any and all gifts bestowed: YouTube
4. Beethoven's sublime string quaretet #14 in c-sharp minor, mvts 6-7:
5. Selections from Haydn's Creation: YouTube
6. Cilea's "E la solita storia"(Lamento di Federico) from L'Arlessiana:
or alternatively Puccini's E lucevan le stelle from Tosca: YouTube
, a lament for missed opportunities, a languorous cry of self pity and regret.
7. Another Stabat Mater, this time Anotnio Caldara's wonderfully crafted work, inspirational, devotional and stimulating yet peaceful all in one:
8. Finally Allegri's Miserere Meus Deus to begin ushering in the angels. That would bring my mood to a serenity of acceptance of impending passage into the next world and beg forgiveness at the same time in a humble manner pleasing to Our Lord.
