Description

The Libertas Choir and orchestra present Johannes Brahms’ spiritual masterpiece, a German Requiem, featuring soprano soloist, Lynelle Kenned, and baritone, Conroy Scott. In contrast to the traditional Latin requiem — which is based on liturgies for the souls of the dead — Brahms chose words from the Psalms and other books of the Bible to create a meditation on life and death. Brahms’ well-crafted, popular masterwork delivers a solid and moving message of comfort, hope and exaltation.
