Johannes Brahms’ “Ein deutsches Requiem” is a masterpiece and constitutes one of the most important works in the history of the oratorio genre.

For the first time in the history of the work, the full score as well as the vocal score with a piano reduction by the composer are presented in scholarly-critical Urtext editions in their own right. They have been prepared simultaneously by individual editors working in close collaboration with each other: Peter Schmitz has edited the full score and Michael Werthmann the vocal score. Both editions are based on the first print authorized by the composer and are at the cutting edge of musical scholarship.

A separate volume (BA 7600-40) unites the Critical Commentaries of these editions. It offers an in-depth analysis of the consulted sources, reconstructs the genesis of the work and documents important editorial decisions. New definitive findings regarding the number of print runs of the first edition are also included. Noteworthy is the detailed description of the autograph score.
