BachFest The English Concert - JS Bach's Mass in B Minor

Saturday, February 24th, 2018, 19:30 - 21:20

This special event in the unique surroundings of Bath Abbey brings together The English Concert, recognised for many years as one of the world’s leading period-instrument orchestras, the Erebus Ensemble, consisting of some of the country’s finest young consort singers, and an unrivalled quartet of soloists, headed by Lucy Crowe, last heard in the Abbey in the 2017 Mozartfest. Under the direction of Harry Bicket, Artistic Director of The English Concert since 2007, they perform the great Mass in B minor which Bach wrote and compiled in the last years of his life, apparently with the intention of creating a lasting monument to his art.
