“How Lovely is Thy Dweling Place” is one of the seven
movements in Brahms’ A German Requiem. Although the
Requiem Mass in the Roman Catholic liturgy begins with
prayers for the dead ("Grant them eternal rest, O Lord"),
A German Requiem focuses on the living, beginning
with the text "Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be
comforted." Brahms composed the requiem mass between
1865 and 1868. Brahms himself made an alternate
arrangement of the music as a piano duet, four hands on
one piano, including the vocal parts, probably for use
in a home or as a chamber performance.
This arrangement for saxophone quartet by David DeBoor
Canfield was done in 2013 for the memorial service of
Dr. Thomas Liley, who was well-known in the saxophone
world as performer, pedagogue, scholar, lecturer,
researcher and biographer. The music is scored for
soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones. The set
comes with both full score and parts. Duration:
approximately 5.5 minutes.
