Completed in 1749, the year before his death J S Bach's
phenomenal B Minor Mass, is the culmination of this great
composer's creative life and is the very pinnacle of baroque
music. In effect, Bach assembles all the very best of his
choral music into a most wonderful and ravishingly beautiful
The work is remarkable in being a musical setting of
the full Catholic Mass by a Lutheran composer. Although
not performed in its entirety until the 19th century, it now
receives frequent performances throughout the world and is
widely regarded as the supreme achievement of classical
music. Hearing this great work for the first time is a life
changing experience and there are moments which literally
make the hair stand up on the back of one's neck!
