J S Bach
Mass in B minorBWV 232

Thursday 30 November 2017 at 7.30pm
Birmingham Town Hall, Victoria Square, Birmingham B3 3DQ MAP

Bach’s B minor Mass is quite simply one of the greatest creations of the human mind. It has been central to my musical career ever since Birmingham Bach Choir’s previous musical director, Richard Butt, brought back a full score of the work from Leipzig as a gift for me back in 1988 and then proceeded to inspire me with its riches. Since then I have conducted the work many times, a lot of those with Birmingham Bach Choir.  There is a whole world of experience and emotion in this Mass. As I have said before, I feel that Bach is the only universal composer. In the adapted words of that immortal advertisement, he reaches parts which no other composer can reach, past, present or future. It was therefore an easy choice to celebrate this milestone in my relationship with Birmingham Bach Choir. I want to say how grateful I am to Richard Hawley of Town Hall/Symphony Hall for giving us this opportunity and for marking my 25 years with the choir in such a way.
