Mass in B minor

Johann Sebastian Bach - Autumn 2017

One of his last compositions, Bach’s Mass in B minor is regarded as one of the greatest works in musical history.

Conductor 
Jonathan Peter Kenny
Orchestra 
Old Street Band

Bach’s Mass in B minor is one of the great statements of faith in music: a mighty response to life’s terrible silences. Being part of a performance, whether as an audience member or a chorister, is one of the things that can change your life.

At several venues around the country ETO’s orchestra and soloists, under the direction of Jonathan Peter Kenny, collaborate with local choirs to build this cathedral of music – including many amateur singers who took part in last year’s extraordinary performance of Bach’s St John Passion.
