Mass in B minor

COR16044 Mass in B Minor BWV 232

J. S. Bach

Price: £18.00

Overview

Two-CD Set

Bach's Mass in B minor displays all the ingredients that that contribute his supreme ranking amongst his peers of any age, and also demonstrates the breadth of compositional skills amassed during his lifetime. It demands choral singing of blistering athleticism but also sensitive, responsive and, at times, majestic orchestral playing coupled with virtuosic obligatos along with a team of soloists who can breathe an immediacy of expression into the words of the mass. All these elements are well to the fore in this magnificent recording.

"There are too many individual highlights, whether of chorus, orchestral ensemble, vocal solo or instrumental obbligato to warrant specification here: suffice to say that we have here an extremely fine, unified, convincing and satisfying performance, allied to a very clear recording."

Laudate - Guild of Church Musicians
