    Description: Brahms: Ein deutsches Requiem
    Though the final, seven-movement version of A German Requiem was premiered in Leipzig on 18 February 1869, Brahms subsequently prepared an alternative version to be performed with piano duet accompaniment. This alternative version was used, sung in English, for the first complete British performance of the Requiem on 10 July 1871 and has, thus, become known as the "London Version" (German: Londoner Fassung).  The lighter accompaniment makes it an ideal version to be sung by a chamber choir.
