      EVENT DETAILS
      Brahms' Requiem & Vaughan Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem

      Johannes Brahms’ A German Requiem, To Words of the Holy Scriptures, Op. 45 is a large-scale work for choir, soprano and baritone soloists, and orchestra composed between 1865 and 1868. It comprises seven movements and is Brahms’ longest composition. A German Requiem is sacred but non-liturgical. Unlike a long tradition of the Latin Requiem which is a Mass for the Dead, 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 of comfort persists through the work.

      Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Dona nobis pacem (Grant us peace) is a cantata written in 1936 for choir, soprano and baritone soloists, and orchestra. The text for the work is taken from the Mass, three poems by Walt Whitman, a political speech, and sections of the Bible, with the phrase “dona nobis pacem” punctuating the entire work. Vaughan Williams, who refers to World War I in the work, composed Dona nobis pacem during a time when fears were growing that another great war was on the horizon.

      The Sackets Harbor Vocal Arts Ensemble will be under the direction of Richard E. Probert.
