Spring 2011: B Minor Mass

Spring 2011 - B minor Mass

Saturday 16 April 2011 at 19:30

St Mary's Church, Hitchin »

Bach's Mass in B minor

Soloist(s): Aoife Miskelly, Rupert Enticknap, Graham Neal, Thomas Coltman

Accompanist(s): Musica Donum Dei

Conductor: Stephen Bullamore

In 1817 the Swiss critic, Hans-Georg Nägeli acclaimed Bach’s Mass in B minor as the “greatest work of music of all ages and of all peoples”. This may seem a surprising assertion in the age of Mozart and Beethoven but even today there are few who doubt that it should be up there among the very great musical works of all time.

The North Herts Guild of Singers is very proud to be performing this stunning work in St Mary’s Church, Hitchin, on Saturday 16 April starting at 7.30pm. We will be welcoming back the period-instrument ensemble, Musica Donum Dei, to accompany us after their wonderful performances in the Monteverdi 1610 Vespers and the Messiah last year. There will be four soloists.
