Selig sind die Toten

Selig sind die Toten (English: Blessed are the dead), is a line from the Bible frequently used in funeral music of German-speaking composers.

The text begins in Revelation 14:13, in the Luther Bible Selig sind die Toten, die in dem Herrn sterben von nun an, in English begins Blessed are the dead, who die in the Lord, from henceforth.

The most famous settings are by Johannes Brahms in the final movement of A German Requiem, and by Heinrich Sch tz in his collection Musikalische Exequien. It is a favourite of amateur choirs.

Other settings include those by Johann Schein, Gottfried Scheidt, Karl Piutti, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Georg Philipp Telemann and Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (op. 115 n. 1)

Johann Sebastian Bach used the words in a recitative of his cantata O Ewigkeit, du Donnerwort, BWV 60.
