Schütz, Selig sind die Toten
settings of Funeral Sentences by Morley, Tomkins and Purcell
Ockeghem, Missa pro defunctis

Brahms, Selig sind from Ein Deutsches Requiem

Uplifting memorial music for those who have gone before. The texts of the Funeral Sentences are from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. Ockeghem’s Missa pro defunctis expresses emotions associated with grief and healing: eternal rest and hope, comfort, longing for God, strength and resolve. Brahms was, in his German Requiem, a Romantic-era soulmate of Schütz and Ockeghem. The singers offer this program in memory of long-time Schola Cantorum singers and supporters Karen Nezelek and Clare Fewtrell.
