Bach spent the last years of his life in Leipzig, undertaking what he knew would be his final great achievement — the compilation of some of his finest vocal compositions into his magnificent Mass in B minor. Along with his monumental St. Matthew Passion, this is Bach at his most extravagant. Join us for a performance featuring over 26 period instrumentalists, 8 internationally-renowned soloists and a chorus of professional ripieniests.
