One of his most popular and awe-inspiring works, Brahms Requiem provides a universally humanistic vision of comfort and hope. Responsible for making the composer an international name, this masterpiece is one of the finest examples of choral writing. The soprano solo, written following the death of his mother, is full of tenderness and sorrow while the baritone and chorus numbers are full of drama. Set in the atmospheric St Giles’ Cathedral and accompanied by the majestic power of its Rieger organ, the result is a powerful and emotional experience from the National Youth Choir of Scotland.

Conductor: Christopher Bell

Organ: Michael Bawtree
