BRAHMS, J.: Deutsches Requiem (Ein) (1871 London version) (Sung in English) (Areyzaga, H. Russell, Bella Voce, A. Lewis)

Brahms’ fascination with music of the 16th to the 18th centuries was nurtured during his appointment in Vienna as conductor of the Singakademie. His own choral compositions had gradually moved from an almost pastiche Renaissance style towards a fully mature, Romantic approach, culminating in his large-scale choral masterpiece Ein deutsches Requiem. This performance is sung in a new English translation prepared by Lara Hoggard that fits the original German declamation and with the piano four-hands accompaniment written by Brahms himself.
