Grant them rest

In the Netherlands, the 4th of May is the day we commemorate all Dutch who fell in combat, be they military or civilians. Last year I posted an excerpt from A German Requiem by Brahms, the third movement (Denn alles Fleisch, es ist wie Gras). This year, we move to the other side of the battle lines with the Agnus Dei from Faure's incomparable Requiem.
