Tony Jay

The late Tony Jay (1933-2006), the actor who voiced Frollo in the movie.

is a song from the movie 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame' (1996), sung by the film's main antagonist Judge Claude Frollo (voiced by Tony Jay). Along with the original English-language version, I reccommend the Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Arabic, Hebrew, French, German, Danish, and Italian-language versions.

Judge Claude Frollo, the main antagonist of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame."


Frollo: "Beata Maria

You know I am a righteous man

Of my virtue I am justly proud

Beata Maria

You know I'm so much purer than

The common, vulgar, weak, licentious crowd"

Quia peccavi nimis (That I have sinned)

Frollo: "Then tell me, Maria

Why I see her dancing there

Why her smoldering eyes still scorch my soul"

Cogitatione (In thought)

Frollo: "I feel her, I see her

The sun caught in her raven hair

Is blazing in me out of all control"

Verbo et opere (In word and deed)

Frollo: "Like fire


This fire in my skin

This burning desire

Is turning me to sin

It's not my fault"

Mea culpa (Through my fault)

Frollo: "I'm not to blame"

Mea culpa (Through my fault)

Frollo: "It is the gypsy girl

The witch who set this flame"

Mea maxima culpa (Through my most griveous fault)

Frollo: "It's not my fault"

Mea culpa (Through my fault)

Frollo: "If in God's plan"

Mea culpa (Through my fault)

Frollo: "He made the Devil so much

Stronger than a man"

Mea maxima culpa (Through my most griveous fault)

Frollo: "Protect me, Maria!

Don't let the siren cast her spell

Don't let her fire

Sear my flesh and bone!

Destroy Esmeralda

And let her taste the fires of Hell

Or else let her be mine and mine alone"

Captain of the Guard (speaking): "Minister Frollo, the gypsy has escaped."

Frollo: "What?!"

Captain of the Guard: "She's nowhere in the cathedral. She's gone."

Frollo (speaking): "But how, I--? Never mind! Get out, you idiot! I'll find her. I'll find her if I have to burn down all of Paris!"

Frollo (singing): "Hellfire

Dark fire

Now, gypsy, it's your turn!

Choose me or

Your pyre

Be mine or you will burn!"

Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)

Frollo: "God have mercy on her"

Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)

Frollo: "God have mercy on me"

Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)

Frollo: "But she will be mine

Or she will burn!"
