Johannes Brahm's Alto Rhapsody will be sung by Veronica Christenson at the 10 a.m. March 25 service at St. George's Episcopal Church in La Cañada. The Alto Rhapsody, op. 53, is among Brahms's most moving and successful works. The text consists of three stanzas (Nos. 5-7) from Goethe's Harzreise in Winter. These comprise, first, vivid images of the misanthrope lost in the wilderness; second, a psychological depiction of his misery, loneliness, and selfishness; and, finally, a twofold prayer to the "Father of Love": that the unfortunate one be granted a pleasing melody that will "refresh" or "restore" (erquicke)
