About Ex Cathedra 2024/25: Bach Mass in B Minor

Running time  Apr 2hr 10min inc interval

“A small product of the skill I have attained in Musique” wrote Bach as he sent two of the movements to the court of Dresden. That’s quite the job application, and rather an understatement! The movements were composed across 25 years and the Mass only assembled into its final form shortly before Bach’s death, so he never heard a complete performance. But what an epic work it is, showcasing supreme mastery and a profound beauty that resonates deeply within us.

Ex Cathedra is a B:Music Associate Artist.
