Recorded on

Brahms’ ‘Wie lieblich sind deine Wohnungen’ is taken from his German Requiem – a large-scale seven-movement work. The text of the work is not the usual Catholic Requiem mass but rather various scriptural passages (in German). The text of this particular movement is taken from Psalm 84.
