Known often as a “requiem for the living,” the scripture for Brahms’s A German Requiem was chosen by the composer to comfort those that the dead leave behind. In a letter to the conductor of one of the work’s premieres, Brahms is noted as saying he wished it to be renamed “A Human Requiem,” for he hoped that all humanity would take solace in its music and text.
