‘this exuberant performance moves and inspires’ (Classic FM magazine)
We are delighted to be reunited with our four stellar soloist-friends for this year’s festival performance of J. S. Bach’s magnificent B minor Mass. The chorus, which has been handpicked for this performance from Britain’s finest early music consorts, comprises a sensational selection of singers from the Monteverdi Choir, The Sixteen, Polyphony, Dunedin Consort and the Gabrieli and King’s Consorts. A large-scale ensemble of superb instrumentalists bring an authenticity to the 15-year-old Ludus Baroque, combining splendidly gutsy gut strings, colourful woodwind, soaring brass and tightly honed timpani.
