"A German Requiem," also termed "Human Requiem" by Brahms, was written following the death of his mother. In place of customary liturgical requiem texts, with their pleas of sparing the deceased from judgment, Brahms warmly sets Luther's German translation of the Bible in heartfelt compassion toward those left behind. This exquisite work of consolation and contemplation, sung in German, features an 80-member chorus, four-hands piano by Geoffrey Waite and Zachary Ridgway, soprano Lily Guerrero (www.lilyguerrero.com), and baritone Jake Skipworth (www.jakeskipworth.com). The San Antonio Choral Society (www.sachoralsociety.org) wishes to ensure the safety of our attendees and performers. Masks will be requested.
