Although Bach’s B minor Mass was compiled and rearranged from earlier works by the composer during his last years, it has come to stand as one of the pinnacles of the entire repertoire. It waited over a century for its first complete performance, and was described by its first publisher as ‘the greatest musical work of art of all times and nations’. The Hallé Choir, on tremendous form, are keenly anticipating working with Sir Mark, exploring together this monument to Bach’s genius. Alice Coote joins a star cast of soloists; the orchestral writing is particularly brilliant, with many opportunities for Hallé Principals to shine in the instrumental solos that grace the arias and duets.
