Come and Sing Brahms Requiem!

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

Following on from the well-received Come and Sing Mozart Requiem day in January 2018, Cantemus Chamber Choir is inviting choristers to join them to Come and Sing the Brahms Requiem (sung in the original German) which will take place on Saturday 12th January 2019 at Eglwys Dewi Sant, central Cardiff, from 09:30 – 15:30.

Our Music Director Huw Williams will lead the day with accompaniment by Robert Court. Tickets cost £12 (£6 for under 18s) and this will include score hire and light refreshments. They can be obtained from or from choir members.

The Brahms Requiem has long been a favourite of choirs and audiences. It was the first non-Latin and non-liturgical Requiem and was composed between 1865 and 1868. The stirring ‘Denn alles Fleisch’ is a real highlight. ‘Wie lieblich sind’ (How lovely) is the work’s centrepiece, followed by the expressive ‘Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit’ written in memory of Brahms’ mother. Brahms stated that, in writing the Requiem, he intended to comfort the living rather than writing for the souls of the dead. [/av_textblock]
