Lovely Dwellings

Sunday  One of my favourite choral pieces is found in the fourth section of Brahms’ German Requium. “Wie lieblich sind deine wohnungen” is known to us English audiences as “How lovely are thy dwellings”. It is fairly popular in the world of choral music but that’s likely because it is such a beautiful piece; if you have heard it many times before, I’m fairly certain you won’t mind enjoying it again. An English translation of the text can be read here.
