Hamline United Methodist Church
Saint Paul, Minnesota
Special guest: St. Paul Central High School Women’s Chorus, Martha Graber, director
On this Mother’s Day weekend, we perform Johannes Brahms’ masterpiece, Ein Deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem), which was completed in 1868. With the 1865 death of his mother as partial inspiration, Brahms focused on themes of comfort and hope for those dealing with loss. The St. Paul Central High School Women’s Chorus joins the OSM women in two additional works by Brahms: Psalm 13 and Ave Maria.
