BEDFORD CHORAL SOCIETY: BACH B MINOR MASS at Bedford Corn Exchange

Saturday 26 March 2022


Event in Bedford Town Centre

Bach’s B minor Mass was composed in parts over a number of years.  Only in later life did he add the remaining sections to the three parts already composed (largely from music from earlier works).  The Mass is in short sections in a mixture of styles.  Local traditions dictated a considerable burden for the chorus; the solo music is not as operatic as in the Neapolitan-style mass.  The work was not published until the 19th century; Sir Arthur Sullivan prepared the edition for the first performances in England.
