An immense cathedral of sound, an almanac of human emotion. Though conceived for the church, Bach’s B minor Mass conveys profound humanity whatever your beliefs, encompassing the fullest range of human feelings, from intense grief to euphoric joy.
One of the world’s most iconic musical works – even considered a pinnacle of human artistic achievement – is directed by one of Britain’s most astute, incisive Baroque musicians.
Richard Egarr brings boundless enthusiasm and energy – as well as compelling new insights – to all he performs. He’s joined by a peerless quintet of some of the country’s finest singers, as well as the magnificent SCO Chorus, in this monumental work of blazing power and visionary beauty.
