Join the University of Dublin Choral Society in our upcoming performance of Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem and Mendelssohn’s Die erste Walpurgisnacht.

Brahms’ Requiem is one of the most loved masterworks in the choral repertoire. In contrast to the great Requiems of Mozart and Verdi, it it is a non-liturgical work of mourning, offering consolation for the living. UDCS performed the Irish premiere of the piece in 1911.

The contrast with Mendelssohn’s Die erste Walpurgisnacht could hardly be more great. It is a secular work concerning a conflict between Christians and pagans in the Harz mountains, with the text written by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Soloists: Grace Bermingham (Soprano), Stuart Kinsella (Tenor) and Gyula Nagy (Bass).

Conducted by David Leigh
