Bach / The Bach Choir Of Bethlehem - B Minor Mass mp3 flac

A very brief excerpt from Bach's exquisite Mass in B Minor, performed by The Bach Choir of Bethlehem at the 111th Bethlehem Bach Festival in May, 2018.

The Mass in B minor (BWV 232) by Johann Sebastian Bach is a musical setting of the complete Ordinary of the Latin Mass. The work was one of Bach's last compositions, not completed until 1749, the year before his death. Much of the Mass gave new form to vocal music that Bach had composed throughout his career, dating back (in the case of the Crucifixus) to 1714, but extensively revised. To complete the work, in the late 1740s Bach composed new sections of the Credo such as Et incarnatus est.

In his Mass in B Minor, Bach sets to music the traditional five texts of the Ordinary that composers had focused upon for centuries. These are the Kyrie (in English, Lord, have mercy ), Gloria ( Glory to God in the highest ), Credo ( I believe in one God ), Sanctus ( Holy, holy, holy Lord ), and Agnus Dei ( Lamb of God ). America’s venerable Bach Choir of Bethlehem sang Bach and Mendelssohn with good-natured and ruddy-cheeked elation.
