Any lover of choral music knows the Brahms Requiem, celebrated since its inception as one of the sublime expressions of human grief and the comfort that scripture offers to the living. Brahms called it a German requiem but suggested that indeed it might be better called a human requiem. Most frequently performed with orchestra, we take our cue in this performance from musicologist Julius Herford who described the work as a succession of accompanied motets. Brahms himself made a four-hand piano version, and with pianists Kellie Moody and Josie DiPhillipo – and distinguished guests Molly Harmon, soprano, and Douglas Williams, bass-baritone – we offer in the warm setting of Woodfords Congregational Church a more intimate experience of one of the greatest choral works of all time.
