Sunday Brunch – Christine Schäfer sings Brahms

Christine Schäfer's skills as an interpreter of Lieder shine in this beautiful aria from Brahms' German Requiem. It's said Brahms composed this movement in memory of his mother. 

Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit; aber ich will euch wiedersehen, und euer Herz soll sich freuen,
und eure Freude soll niemand von euch nehmen. 

Sehet mich an; ich habe eine kleine Zeit Mühe und Arbeit gehabt, und habe großen Trost gefunden. 

Ich will euch trösten, wie einen seine Mutter tröstet. 

And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, 
and your joy no man taketh from you.

Behold with your eyes, how that I laboured but a little, and found for myself much rest. 

As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you.
