Our next concert

Brahms German Requiem

sung in English

Sunday 10th December

St Mark's Church, Hamilton Terrace



Deeply moving, profound, and powerful, the Requiem is central to our understanding of Brahms’s compositional personality and spiritual life. Behind its dramatic gestures and 19th century grandeur, it reveals Brahms’s obsessions with folk-songs and the music of the past. The libretto, assembled by Brahms himself based on the Lutheran Bible, makes it a hugely personal reflection – perhaps on the recent passing of his mother, and certainly his world view.
