Bach’s monumental Mass in B Minor is one of the uncontestable masterpieces of the choral literature. All of Bach’s hallmarks are present: intricately woven counterpoint; brilliant orchestral writing, like the joyous trumpet and drums punctuating the exuberant Gloria and Et resurrexit; profoundly expressive solo vocal passages; and an overall dramatic power that unfailingly uplifts the spirit.
