Johannes Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem
March 25, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
This Spring, Westminster Choir will present excerpts from this famous work on Sunday, March 25th at our 10:30 am worship.
Church choirs across the world are busy rehearsing requiems by many of the great composers in preparation for Holy Week. While the term “requiem” refers to a Mass for the dead, critics have coined Ein Deutsches Requiem by Johannes Brahms a “Human Requiem” or a “Mass for the Living” due to the composer’s choice of texts. Due to time constraints, the Requiem will not be performed in its entirety. However, we will include the most beloved movement, “How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place”. This performance will feature baritone soloist Trey Meyer and pianists Travis Worsham and Dr. Brenda Wristen. The musicians will be led by guest conductor Dr. Matthew Oltman, UNL lecturer in choral activities and Music Director Emeritus of the Grammy award winning ensemble Chanticleer. Plan to attend this important worship service and consider reaching out to others in your life who might be moved by this deeply spiritual experience.
