Comforting instead of mourning, that seems to be the core of Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem. That he would actually have preferred to call it 'a human requiem', in retrospect. Because Brahms appeals to the ordinary man and woman. Who has lost loved ones and knows that their own life is also finite. This finitude is not scary in Brahms. He portrays the afterlife as a place of security. Literally, in the choice he makes from Bible texts. And figuratively: for Brahms, heaven is the middle of seven parts. A glowing choir takes us there.
