In case anyone wanted to know where the chant from La Vie Boheme came from.  It’s called “DIES IRAE - DIES ILLA.” and it’s from the Catholic hymn/Gregorian chant "Day of Wrath" as shown above

As for what the fuck they’re saying:

"KYRIE ELEISON." Kyrie Eleison literally translated to - "Christ have mercy.” The subject of numerous Latin hymns in the Catholic church

"YITGADAL V’ YITKADASH." Refers to a Jewish hymn (called a Kaddish)of mourning. A video of the Kaddish being performed is here (It’s known as the prayer of the dead)

Also! if you want to know where a lot of the obscure references in Rent come from, or what they are/actually mean: Check this out! it answered a lot of my questions, and it will answer yours.

It really makes me happy to know Johnathan Larson really payed close attention to detail, threw so many interesting art/history/pop culture references into his art. It only makes me love Rent even more.

What happened is the more I ticked over into my late 20s and early 30s I had a bit of an epiphany whereby I realised I was just going to do whatever the fuck I wanted – I don’t have to be one or the other. I’m just one of those people that operates on a level whereby if I’m creatively driven by something I’ll do it. I don’t care what form it takes – film, musical, album, live show – if it’s in me and I feel I need to get it out of me, then I’ll just go do it.
