Brahms’ “Ein deutsches Requiem,” Op. 45, represents not only one of the  landmark sacred choral works of the nineteenth century, it is also the culmination of a long tradition of such works used both in funeral services and also as commemorations and memorials of the departed.This course will explore the tradition behind Brahms’s masterpiece, the genesis of his “German Requiem,” the ways that this work for chorus, soloists and orchestra compares with contemporary treatments using the traditional Latin liturgicaltexts. The course will conclude with a focus onseveral movements of Brahms’ extended work to understand how the composer deployed all the resources at his command to provide music of supreme (and personal) consolation to all who mourn a departed loved one.

Learn why this is one of the mostconsoling andhumane sacredworks ever written.
