|Bach||Mass in B minor, BWV232|
|London Bach Singers|
|Martha McLorinan||mezzo soprano|
|Nicholas Hurndall Smith||tenor|
From the opening primal scream of the ‘Kyrie’ to the gentle blessing of the ‘Benedictus’, the Mass in B minor has an almost operatic intensity.
Bach completed the final version of his greatest choral masterpiece shortly before his death and even by his own extraordinary standards the emotional depth and majestic proportions of the Mass are astonishing.
The London Bach Singers join forces again with the Feinstein Ensemble to give their acclaimed reading of this wonderful work, under the direction of Martin Feinstein.
The concert will be preceded by a Pre-Concert Talk given by Professor Timothy Jones from the Royal Academy of Music at 5pm in Hall One.
