It is a dialogue across the ages when, towards the end of his life, the seeker of meaning Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), baptised as a Protestant, chooses biblical words recorded between 300 BC and 50 AD to set to music. The fact that there is no mention of Christ, suits the skeptically minded Brahms. Questions were ultimately more important to him than traditional and ecclesiastical answers.

The poet-composer Peter Cornelius (1824-1874), on the other hand, is an altogether different case. Poetically entwining Jesus’ Lord’s Prayer with his own words, he then set the verses to music by drawing on the musical motifs of the Gregorian Paternoster. The fact that he, as a Catholic, refers to the Luther Bible is a feature he has in common with Brahms. In the midst of his compositional work, Cornelius informs his mentor Franz Liszt in a letter dated September 6, 1854: ‘For fourteen days, my Paternoster has been in the process of becoming a very interesting work… Nine songs about the cantus firmus! This is new, and some of it turned out well.’

Finally, Gustav Mahler (1860-1911) praises Friedrich Rückert’s highly subjective poetry as ‘first-hand lyricism.’ In the summer of 1901, Mahler set to music five of the many poems Rückert had written in June and July 1834 as part of a three and a half months long poetic mourning period, following the death of two of his children. As with Mahler’s other Rückert settings, the so-called “Rückert-Lieder”, there exist both a piano and an orchestral version.
