Valley Festival Singers bring to life Brahms' German Requiem--his greatest and best know choral work.
Brahm's Requiem stands outside the liturgical settings of the Latin requiem mass in that Brahms consciously chose words from the Bible (including the Apocrypha) concentrating on the consoling of the bereaved as well as the peaceful deposition of the souls of the departed. The movements each end affirmatively with emphasis on everlasting joy, or the departed souls of the righteous resting peacefully in God's hands, or of victory over the grave. The seven movements of the work are laid out as an arch, buttressed by the invocations of "Selig sind" – blessed be those who mourn, or those who have died.
A truly remarkable work and event you won't want to miss!
