UMBC Camerata: Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem)
The UMBC Camerata performs Johannes Brahm’s Choral masterwork, Ein deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem) in collaboration with the Handel Choir of Baltimore and the Orchestra of Saint Johns under the direction of Melinda O’Neal at the Church of Saint Michaels and All Angels.
Rather than writing music for the Latin requiem mass, Brahms selected an entirely different set of biblical texts in German and with no liturgical purpose. Composed for the living rather than the departed, his monumental, transformative Ein deutsches Requiem is woven throughout with a clear awareness of life’s transience, and our need to be comforted.
