Seattle Bach Choir Presents: Mass in B Minor by J.S. Bach

Choral, Classical, Classical (Solo Vocal)

The Seattle Bach Choir presents J. S. Bachís symphonic masterpiece: his Mass in B Minor. Completed in 1749, a year before Bach's death, the Mass in B Minor represents Bach's lifetime of musical achievement. Encyclopedic in scope, the piece evokes centuries of musical tradition, from ancient chant to progressive Italian style. Scholars believe Bach used this Mass to "preserve" some of his best vocal works, and it is now widely considered one of the greatest compositions in musical history. Seattle Bach Choir performs with period-style instrumentation, accompanied by many of the regionís finest Baroque musicians and soloists. Led by musical scholar Dr. Anne Lyman, Seattle Bach Choir concerts are educational and uplifting for music lovers of all ages and levels.
