Johannes Brahms Ein deutsches Requiem, Op. 45. Sung in English
“Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Written in German rather than the customary Latin, Brahms’ hope was for listeners to fully understand the texts, and with these comforting words, to find solace and strength amidst of suffering. In honor of Brahms’ intention, we will be presenting this great masterpiece in the English Language.
