The Sixteen: Bach Mass in B Minor


Product Description

Bach’s Mass in B minor displays all the ingredients that contribute to his supreme ranking among 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.
