Eternal Light (Howard Goodall) / Brahms Requiem Concert - 18th November

As Eternal Light not a terribly long work, we will be supplementing the programme with the first 4 movements from Brahms' Requiem.  


YouTube playlist is here.

The Eternal Light is the best I could find - but if you find a better one please let me know!

The Brahms is in German (because it is supposedly the best recording and there aren't many in English!).  We are just singing the first 4 movements.

Sorry about the adverts :(


If you want to try Spotify instead (no ads if you subscribe to premium), here is the link 


If you want help with "note-bashing" Brahms link is here  (Cyberbass).  

Eternal light - Audio files of the individual parts recorded by Tom can be found here.
