Accompanied by a Baroque orchestra of period instruments, Chorale presents Bach’s tour de force Mass in B minor. The work was completed in 1749, one year before the composer’s death, and is generally held to be a summation of Bach’s musical and theological ideas. Tragically, it was never performed in its entirety during his lifetime. Soloists Chelsea Morris, Angela Young-Smucker, Steven Soph, and Ryan de Ryke join Chorale in a performance that is sure to match or surpass our 2014 St. Matthew Passion, hailed by Lawrence Johnson of Chicago Classical Review for its “exquisite ensemble, unforgettable arias,…and burnished playing from a period instrument ensemble.”
