Beethoven, Ode to Joy (An die Freude - Excerpt from the ninth symphony)

Riccardo Muti, Philadelphia Orchestra,

Westminster Choir, James Morris (bass)

*

Freude schöner Götterfunken
Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten feuertrunken,
Himmlische, dein Heiligtum!
Deine Zauber binden wieder
Was die Mode streng geteilt;
Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

Translation in English

Joy, bright spark of divinity,
Daughter of Elysium,
Fire-inspired we tread
Thy sanctuary.
Thy magic power re-unites
All that custom has divided,
All men become brothers
Under the sway of thy gentle wings.

*

Picture : Cabanel, La Naissance de Vénus
