On 22 and 23 March, the Philharmonia Chorus took part in two performances of Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem in the Laeiszhalle, Hamburg, with soprano Chen Reiss, baritone Christian Gerhaher, and the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Jeffrey Tate. These are some of the reactions on Facebook and Twitter:

'By far the best performance of Brahms I have ever heard. The concert on Sunday was even better than on Saturday. Thank you and see you soon hopefully.'

'Der Chor ist fantastisch.'

'The work has never sounded like this. What a magnificent chorus! '

Listen to the performance given on Sunday 23 March:

I. Selig sind, die da Leid tragen

II. Denn alles Fleisch, es ist wie Gras

III. Herr, lehre doch mich

IV. Wie lieblich sind deine Wohungen

V. Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit

VI. Denn wir haben keine bleibende Statt

VII. Selig sind die Toten
