J. S. Bach Mass in B minor

Choir of Westminster Abbey

Our annual visit to Westminster Abbey honours Bach’s late masterpiece, compiled and adapted in his final years from earlier pieces and seemingly devised as a summation of his life’s work as a composer of sacred music. From joy to grief, celebration to supplication and triumph to penitence, this is one of the great monuments of Western music.

Tickets £45, £36, £27, £20 & £16 (restricted view), £12 (no view)

This concert takes place by kind permission and with the support of the Dean and Chapter of Westminster.

‘A choice performance ... delicacy and tenderness ... an extraordinary range of expressive tone.’
