BACH: MASS IN B MINOR
THE CORNERSTONE CHAMBER CHOIR & ORCHESTRA
Leader: Philippa Barton Conductor: Adrian Boynton
Bach’s Mass in B minor, arguably the greatest of Christian musical monuments, is the choice for our Easter season concert. That the composer completed the work apparently without any hope of hearing it performed clearly illustrates the incredible striving for wholeness, fullness and perfection that amazes us in Bach’s music. The Mass draws on a wide variety of forms ad techniques, some of them belonging to an earlier era, others looking forward to the next. The ‘Et Resurrexit’ bursts forth with Easter joy, the ‘Sanctus’ transports us to Heaven itself. The cumulative effect of the whole is magnificent.
