Bach Masses

October 29 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

- £10 - £22
Note

Note the performance time for this event is 4pm and not 7.30pm as advertised on the season brochure. Apologies for the confusion.

JS Bach is one of a very small collection of composers who seem incapable of writing second-rate music. His Lutheran Masses are a perfect illustration of this: overshadowed by his monumental B Minor Mass, they nevertheless contain what might conceivably be his favourite music from the cantatas, lovingly revived in succinct works of vibrant colour and indefatigable inspiration. Loved by all who know them, they give the lie to the idea that the devil gets all the best tunes. The menu is completed with the irrepressible dance rhythms and ravishing harmonies from his Concerto for 2 Oboes & Bassoon.
