J Brahms

German Requiem

Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work. There are two versions: the first has an "orchestrated" form of the piano-reduction backing in the score, while the second has a purely piano version (which is how Brahms originally wrote the Work, though he scored it for two pianos).

I recently added back in the piano version. I got horribly confused along the way doing both piano and orchestral versions - and correcting the tempo of the second half of No: 6 ("For we have no ...") - and I may well have messed it all up. Sorry!
