Dies Irae (Days of Wrath) is a famous thirteenth century Latin hymn thought to be written by Thomas of Celano. It is a medieval Latin poem, differing from classical Latin by its accentual (non-quantitative) stress and its rhymed lines. The meter is trochaic. The poem describes the day of judgment, the last trumpet summoning souls before the throne of God, where the saved will be delivered and the unsaved cast into eternal flames.

Dies Irae~神怒之日~選自<末日詩篇>之終曲Dies Irae,格雷果聖歌(GREGORIAN CHANT)中著名的<末日經>,描寫被烈火燒化一切的地獄,古典音樂家李斯特(LISZT)的<死之舞>與白遼士(BERLIOZ)的<幻想交響曲>皆使用過,其用意仍是藉此大力描寫死亡地獄。在我認為,此段經文是淒美的,是毀滅一切所得的純淨,故這段經文在此曲的使用目的,是昇華的,由此闇黑轉為純白。此曲由Dies Irae的第一句起始,中世紀教堂裡的幽微神祇,陰暗且沉重的祭壇歌聲悠悠傳出;接著,大幅的靈動震撼整個空間,經文脫離教堂的餘韻,冷冽地顯的可笑。黑天使的歌聲由遠處傳來,越見清晰,終於取代了聖者的經文,於是,整個世界開始崩壞-重組,直到經文歌聲再度被白天使所傳唱,重組後的世界超然的純白...
