Tonight the outstanding choir, Tenebrae and the incomparable Academy of Ancient Music join forces under the baton of Nigel Short to perform Bach’s monumental B minor mass, described by the 19th century editor Hans Georg Nayeli as the “Greatest Musical Work of All Times and All People.” I believe the power of this extraordinary work is further enhanced by it being performed as one continuous musical arc so there will be no interval but just a short 5 minute break between the Gloria & the Credo. We expect an enormous demand for tickets for this concert so please do send your booking forms in ASAP.
