Spring Concert: Bach’s B minor Mass
Choral Society of Durham closes our season with Bach’s monumental Mass in B minor, a work intended to summarize and showcase all the compositional technique and expressivity that this great composer had amassed during his life. Each movement has its own style and stamp of creative ingenuity. Performing it is often described as a lifetime experience and hearing it from the audience can feel equally transcendent. We’ll be performing this piece at Baroque pitch (in a lower key), accompanied by period instruments.
