A German Requiem established Brahms as a major composer, linking two of the most important passions of his lifelong career – vocal and symphonic music.v The transcendent Five Mystical Songs for baritone soloist, chorus and orchestra by English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams serves as a radiant gateway to the Brahms. The Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra joins Masterworks Chorale in this first-ever collaboration.
