Taking Johannes Brahms’s time-stopping & luminous Song of Destiny as a centerpiece, we feature works by his colleagues, friends, and inspirations. Rarer works by Clara Schumann and Arnold Schoenberg  are explored alongside some classics of the German choral repertoire. 

Mendelssohn’s Ave Maria features the tenors as cantors, and the altos feature prominently in the final movement from J.S. Bach’s Mass in B minor, perhaps the summary of a lifetime’s work writing religious choral music soli Deo gloria (only for the glory of God).

A joyful return to singing after an enforced interval!
