On December 5 2015, CML performed a new interpretation of Brahms’s much-loved Ein Deutsches Requiem at St James’s, Piccadilly. With orchestral parts re-arranged by Iain Farrington for seven instruments, the concert presented a sensitive re-working of the Requiem but with choral and solo parts left untouched. Soloists Augusta Hebbert and Andrew Rupp joined the choir and an appreciative audience approaching 200 in an all-Brahms programme which also included the haunting Geistliches Lied, opus 30 and the Piano Trio in B Major opus 8.
‘CONGRATULATIONS!! That was such a breathtaking and glorious performance! Every moment was uplifting and inspiring!’
