The Choral Art Society of the South Shore was well into rehearsals for Brahms’s “A German Requiem” when the bombs went off near the Boston Marathon finish line. The work is healing music, said director Danica Buckley.

The Choral Art Society will perform the Brahms Requiem this weekend in Scituate, one of three spring concerts of vocal music coming up this month. Two others take place on May 19.
