Ein deutsches Requiem (Op. 45)


Selig sind die Toten, die in dem Herren sterben

Selig sind die Toten, die in dem Herrn sterben,
von nun an.
Ja, der Geist spricht,
daß sie ruhen von ihrer Arbeit;
denn ihre Werke folgen ihnen nach.

Selig sind die Toten, die in dem Herren sterben

Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord
from henceforth:
Yea, saith the Spirit,
that they may rest from their labours;
and their works do follow them.

Composer

Johannes Brahms (7 May 1833 – 3 April 1897) was a German composer, pianist, and conductor of the Romantic period. Born in Hamburg into a Lutheran family, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna. 

Brahms has been considered, by his contemporaries and by later writers, as both a traditionalist and an innovator. His music is firmly rooted in the structures and compositional techniques of the Classical masters. While many contemporaries found his music too academic, his contribution and craftsmanship have been admired by many.
