Johannes Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem

St. Francois d'Assise, 20 Fairmont Ave, Ottawa

Described by Brahms as a “human” requiem, the German Requiem eschews religious judgement and instead offers consolation and solace. In honour of the many lives lost to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Selig sind, die da Leid tragen
Denn alles Fleisch es ist wie Gras
Herr, lehre doch mich, daß ein Ende
Wie lieblich sind deine Wohnungen
Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit
Denn wir haben hie keine bleibende Statt
Selig sind die Toten

Blessed are they that mourn
Behold, all flesh is as the grass
Lord, let me know mine end
How lovely are thy dwellings
Ye now have sorrow
For we have here no abiding city
Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord
