: You know the monk scene from Monty Python? The monks say 'pies lesu domine....donna eis requiem' is it jiberish? If not what language is it and what does it mean?

"Pie Jesu" from Gabriel Faure's "Requiem"

Latin: Pie Jesu / Qui tollis peccata mundi / Donna eis requiem / Angus Dei / Donna eis requiem sempiternam /

English: Merciful Jesus / Who takest away the sins of the world / Grant them rest / Oh Lamb of God / Grant them eternal rest

"Agnus Dei" from Mozart's "Requiem"

: Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi: / donna eis requiem. / Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi: / donna eis requiem. / Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi: / donna eis requiem sempiternam.

English: O Lamb of God that takest away the sins of the world: / grant them rest. / O Lamb of God that takest away the sins of the world: / grant them rest. / O Lamb of God that takest away the sins of the world: / grant them rest eternal.
