The Bach Choir: Mass in B Minor

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

The Bach Choir sings Bach’s magnificent mass, led by Music Director David Hill.

The Bach Choir was formed in 1876 to give the first UK performance of Bach's Mass in B minor, which is widely regarded as one of the greatest works of sacred choral music ever written.

From its opening Kyrie, to the Beautiful Laudamus Te, Bach's magnificence is evident for all who listen.

It was also the last major work that Bach wrote and one that was never heard in its entirety in the composer’s lifetime.
