German Requiem 2009Dundee Choral Union

Read more about the opera Deutsches Requiem

This was an excellent performance of the Brahms Requiem, dominated by the Australian baritone Derek Welton, and the Orchestra of Scottish Opera, rarely allowed to play the wonderful orchestration of Brahms.

Norman Beedie was a native Dundonian who, as an excellent pianist, had spent his career first in Paris assisting Nadia Boulanger then teaching in London.  He had recently retired to live near Aberfeldy.

Before the interval the chorus was put through its solo paces, with two Bruckner motets (Locus iste and Ecce sacerdos), followed by John Tavener's Song for Athena and Samuel Barber's Agnus Dei.
