Our season finishes with more music by Edward Elgar who was greatly inspired by Johannes Brahms during a visit to Leipzig. From the Bavarian Highlands, was written in 1894, in homage to a memorable Bavarian holiday. The song lyrics were adapted to Elgar's music by the composer’s wife Alice with words "adapted from the Volkslieder and Schnadahüpfler" imitating the spirit of the dances. Alice gave the songs sub-titles in recollection of favourite places visited during the holiday.This performance has the original  piano accompaniment.

Brahms' German Requiem is one of the most popular works in the choral repertoire and will be performed with the original accompaniment for piano duet. Composed between 1865 and 1868. It comprises seven movements, which together last 65 to 80 minutes, making this work Brahms's longest composition. A German Requiem is sacred but non-liturgical, and unlike a long tradition of the Latin Requiem, A German Requiem, as its title states, is a Requiem in the German language. Although the Requiem Mass in the Roman Catholic liturgy begins with prayers for the dead ("Grant them eternal rest, O Lord"), A German Requiem focuses on the living, beginning with the text "Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted." from the Beatitudes. This theme—transition from anxiety to comfort—recurs throughout.
