Bach’s Mass in B Minor is one of the great masterpieces of all time and his supreme skill is evident from the powerful opening cry for mercy – Kyrie – to the heartrending plea of the concluding Agnus Dei. The awe-inspiring Sanctus, ablaze with trumpets and drums, was first conducted by Bach for his Leipzig Christmas service in 1724. The culmination of a lifetime of work, and completed shortly before his death, Bach never heard his Mass performed as a complete work – you won’t want to miss it!
