Today is not US Memorial Day, it is Veterans Day. In the commonwealth nations it is Remembrance Day.
Today is also called Armistice (note the Latin components of the word) to mark the cease fire agreement signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, a place also known for something else.
So as not to in any way diminish the “remembrance” dimension of this day for so many, here is a setting of Lux perpetua from the Requiem Mass set to an arrangement of Edward Elgar’s “Nimrod” from the Enigma Variations. Sung by Voces8. US HERE – UK HERE
Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine, cum sanctis tuis in aeternum, quia pius es.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.
May light eternal shine upon them, O Lord, with Thy saints, forever, for Thou art Merciful.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon them.
