Abstract

Brahms’s manuscript collection reveals an intimate study of disparate compositional methods––from Sixteenth-Century polyphony to the Protestant liturgical settings of Schutz; from the great choral fugues of Handel and Bach to the lush chromaticism of Romantic harmony––which Brahms assimilated and used as text-appropriate temporal juxtapositions in the famed German Requiem.
