Ein Deutsches Requiem

This past semester, I've been part of a community choir that learned and performed Brahms' A German Requiem. I'd never heard of the piece before, but I'm so glad I learned it now. Not only is it beautiful, but the words are so meaningful (especially to a suffering lady in her first trimester of pregnancy who needs to know that others have understood the suffering that often falls to the lot of mortals). If anyone is looking for a new piece of music to familiarize themselves with, check out the Brahms' German Requiem (it's all on YouTube).
