J.S. Bach’s Mass in B minor is arguably the greatest religious work from the Baroque period and sums up his career as a composer: it was compiled in old age from works written over the previous 40 years. This performance, with a distinguished cast of soloists, a small choir and a Baroque orchestra, incorporates recent advances in our knowledge of how such works were performed in the eighteenth century. Performed by Philippa Hyde & Claire Tomlin (soprano), Timothy Travers-Brown (countertenor), Daniel Auchincloss (tenor), Giles Davies (bass), Psalmody and Essex Baroque Orchestra, directed by Peter Holman.
