Bach: B Minor Mass
Fri, February 24, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm UTC-4
An event every 2 days that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until Sun, February 26, 2017
“The greatest soloist in Bach’s Mass is the chorus, and the Cantata Singers are virtually in a class by themselves. Their union of polish and expressivity is an ongoing wonder. Hearing them sing the majestic closing ‘Dona nobis pacem’ was like seeing the first rays of daylight slowly overtake the night sky, ending in a blaze of radiant sound.” —The Boston Globe, 2007
Cantata Singers returns in February to a piece that continues to be a touchstone for the organization: Bach’s great Mass in B minor. There are two chances to hear Bach’s most profound and enduring choral masterpieces of all time, the first in NEC’s Jordan Hall, and the second in Cary Hall in Lexington.
New England Conservatory musicologist Ellen Exner will give both pre-concert talks, free to all ticketholders, at 7pm. Following the performances, all are welcome at a free post-concert receptions.
