JS Bach's Mass in B minor - BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus

John Butt, one of the boldest and most innovative Bach-interpreters today, conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra & Chorus in his mighty B Minor Mass.

Last conducted by Colin Davies in its 50th anniversary year, the Mass – the pinnacle of Bach’s achievements in sacred music, its movements composed across an astonishing 25-year span – celebrates the Chorus’s 90th birthday, and represents an exciting fusion of Butt’s own period approach with the modern instruments and large-scale forces of the BBCSO and Chorus. They are joined by a stellar line-up of soloists.
