Bach-Mass in B Minor

Following on from our very successful workshops on Bach’s Motets in 2020-21, we turned our attention to his great masterpiece, Mass in B minor, the Mount Everest of choral repertoire: a challenge we conquered in three one-day workshops….

#1 – Saturday 19 March 2022: Gloria in excelsis deo – which includes 5 choruses.

#2 – Saturday 30 April: Symbolum Nicenum (Credo) – a mighty 7 choruses, in three separate chunks.

#3 – Saturday 14 May: Kyrie 1 /Kyrie 2, the two-choir Sanctus (with Hosanna) and Dona nobis pacem.

Howard Beach once again was our expert accompanist.
