      Brahms: Ein deutsches Requiem, Op 45: II, Denn alles Fleisch, es ist wie Gras (13:58)

      MDR Leipzig Radio Choir & Symphony Orchestra / Marin Alsop

      A German Requiem, almost certainly triggered by the death of Brahms’s mother in 1865, is one of his greatest and most popular works, quite unlike any previous Requiem. With texts taken from Luther’s translation of the Bible and an emphasis on comforting the living for their loss and on hope of the Resurrection, the work is deeply rooted in the tradition of Bach and Schütz.
