This Sunday: Brahms' Requiem at Duke

I just bought my ticket for this stellar event Sunday afternoon. 

It will be held in the newly renovated Baldwin Hall on the Duke campus. 

It's the most beautiful German requiem I've ever heard. Brahms is divine. Of the three German "B's," he is the most canticle. His understanding of the human voice was well-nigh perfect. I sort of feel sorry for people who don't know German. It is such a beautiful language for classical music. Such deep comfort for the soul.
