JS Bach Mass in B minor BWV232

There are few mightier spiritual or artistic challenges than Bach’s Mass in B minor, but then few living performers are better equipped to tackle it than Paul McCreesh and Gabrieli. Using chamber-sized forces, McCreesh pares away centuries of performance tradition to drive to the emotional core of this iconic work.
