JS Bach Mass in B minor, BWV232 105' plus interval

"There was progress, light and great power in this performance of Bach’s B minor Mass delivered by Solomon’s Knot, from memory and without a conductor. With an orchestra of twenty, and ten singers, the ensemble was guided by breath and bow, their tone given extra blade by German pronunciation of the Latin text. Using Joshua Rifkin’s edition, Solomon’s Knot vindicated an idea that was pioneered in 1980, their voices richer and more individualistic than those in the first wave of historically-informed performances. From the first Credo through to the seraphic dazzle of the six-part Sanctus, the group found a rhythmic security that allowed for spontaneity. By the end of the Dona nobis pacem, as the trinity of trumpets soared upwards, it felt as though the hall itself was swelling." The Times

Our 33rd Festival opens with a welcome return to Coronation Hall for this truly unique performance of Bach's choral masterpiece, described by its first publisher as 'The greatest musical work of art of all times and nations'.
