JS Bach: Mass in B Minor, Southwark Cathedral (Cancelled in March)

Southwark CathedralLondon Bridge, London, Greater London, SE1 9DA, United Kingdom
March 26, October 08 at 19:30

JS Bach's choral masterpiece, set in the spectacular surroundings of Southwark Cathedral: an evening not to miss, according to Ronald Corp OBE, director of both The London Chorus and the New London Orchestra, and conductor for this concert.

Ron adds: "We’ll never know exactly why JS Bach put this extraordinary Mass together - but it is certainly a showpiece for choral excellence, bringing together pieces with both high church and secular roots from across his lifetime's work. A towering masterpiece, the Mass in B Minor is one of the hardest pieces to bring off in performance - particularly for the chorus who not only need reserves of stamina but also tackle a huge number of notes, requiring lots of concentration and rehearsal time. But it is all well worth it. Bach’s writing is supreme, carrying the listener to a different level."

Delivered by London's most versatile choir and respected soloists, this promises to be a sublimely uplifting evening. There will be an interval during the concert.
