The German Requiem is Brahms’ largest single composition and a pivotal work in his own creative life. It bears little relation to the Messa da Requiem of Catholic liturgy. Less a requiem for the dead, it is more an act of consolation for the bereaved. Brahms told Karl Reinthaler, the choirmaster (and trained theologian) who helped prepare the work’s premiere in Bremen in 1868: ‘I could easily dispense with the word “German” and replace it with “Human”.’ Like Heinrich Schütz in his 1636 burial mass, Musikalische Exequien, Brahms sets German- language texts drawn from the Bible. Many are familiar from Protestant funeral rites used in Germany and elsewhere; the emphasis, however, is very much Brahms’s own.

Some of the music used in the German Requiem can be traced back to 1854, when Brahms launched an ambitious plan to write a four- movement symphony in D minor. This eventually became his First Piano Concerto, though he also set aside certain material, including a slow Scherzo in the form of a sarabande. The basis of the second-movement funeral march in theGerman Requiem (‘For all flesh is as grass’), the sarabande was first used in 1858 in Brahms’s seven-movement, seven-minute Begräbnisgesang (‘Burial Song’), a graveside anthem of rare concentration and intensity scored for mixed chorus and wind band. Schumann’s death, and the grief of his widow, may have been the inspiration behind the piece.

The achievement of the German Requiem, its musical and dramatic reach, helped point the way forward to Brahms’s most cherished goal: the fashioning of a long-awaited first symphony. He nonetheless continued to write sacred music until the end of his life. Indeed, the late flowering of the ancient German Protestant Motet might be regarded as one of his most singular achievements.
