Bach Mass in B minor, BWV 232 110’

There are few mightier spiritual or artistic challenges than Bach’s B Minor Mass – but then, few living performers are better equipped to tackle it than Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort and Players. Using chamber-sized forces, and with the Consort’s own members stepping out as soloists, McCreesh pares away centuries of performance tradition to drive to the emotional core of the B Minor Mass – and lay bare the passionate heart of the genius who wrote it. ‘Marvellous clarity’ declared The Guardian of an earlier, ‘superbly energised’, performance.
