Bach's Mass in B minor: A work replete with great arias, uplifting choruses and thrilling orchestral writing

For Hubert Parry, the B minor Mass was "the mightiest choral work ever written”, whilst for organist and philosopher Albert Schweitzer it was “as enigmatic and unfathomable as the religious consciousness of its creator.” Assembled by Bach near the end of his life from his earlier settings of the Lutheran Mass, it is a work replete with great arias, uplifting choruses and thrilling orchestral writing. The trumpet lines are particularly stunning and the work is a summation of the composer's entire creative output. A remarkable experience is in store, under the spirited direction of Andrew Griffiths.
