Fishburn and Hughes: "Literally 'requiem in German', also understood as 'requiem for Germany': a choral work by Brahms composed upon the death of his mother and first performed in Vienna in 1867. In spite of its devotional and liturgical associations, it dwells upon problems of individual human destiny without mention of Christ." (60)
