Washington Bach Consort - Mass in B Minor

  • 4101 Nebraska Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20016 United States (map)

One of the crowning glories of Bach’ s career and considered by many the Consort’ s trademark piece, the Mass in B Minor is a work that is truly in a class by itself. Completed during the last years of the composer’ s life, the Mass brings together a range of techniques and musical forms that offer both a compendium of Baroque style and of Bach’ s own lifework. Ending the celebration of the Consort’ s 40th anniversary, it stands among that rarified category of masterpieces that are truly inexhaustible and forever new.
