A comment under a YouTube video can speak more directly than an elegantly written program note. About Bach’s B minor Mass, one user has written: “Probably the best piece of music EVER written, and I’m not even exaggerating, I’m being serious.” Completed the year before Bach’s death, the Mass is one of the most inspiring pieces of music ever composed. As musicologist Alberto Basso has put it: “The Mass in B minor is the consecration of a whole life.” The performance features the magnificent British vocal ensemble VOCES8 on their first Australian tour, and Australian conductor Benjamin Bayl, co-founder of the Australian Romantic and Classical Orchestra.
