I,ve just found this:


“Easter at King’s
Radio 3 in Concert Friday 14 April, 19:30

Donald Macleod presents a concert live from the Easter at King’s Festival in Cambridge, conducted by Director of Music Stephen Cleobury. Brahms’s German Requiem is the main work in the programme, which the composer described as a ‘human’ requiem, written not for the dead, but for the living who seek to transcend the human condition.

Mozart: Ave Verum Corpus
Bruckner: Christus factus est
Mendelssohn: Hör mein Bitten (Hear My Prayer)
Brahms: Warum ist das Licht gegeben


Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem, Op 45

King’s College Choir
