Bach: Mass in B Minor
Kingston Choral Society is thrilled to return to Cadogan Hall, alongside a superb quartet of soloists and the period instruments of The Purcell Orchestra, to perform perhaps the greatest piece of choral music ever written: J.S. Bach’s mighty Mass in B Minor. Intended as compendium of everything that Bach had achieved in his lifetime, it contains music of every kind: majestic, overwhelming choruses, magnificent fugues, and arias of heart-rending beauty.
