Brahms was moved to write his German Requiem by the death of his mother. He uses a Lutheran text rather than the usual Latin one to focus on comforting the grieving and considered it a ‘human Requiem’. It is preceded in this festival finale by Parry’s richly radiant expression of admiration composed after Brahms’ own death, and Vaughan Williams’ romantically optimistic vision of the future.
