Bach's B Minor Mass




















It's said that Bach, pictured above, probably never heard his B Minor Mass in its entirety during his lifetime

More amazing music. It's taking place a bit further away this time, but under the baton of Budleigh Salterton's own Nicholas Marshall. As Musical Director of Exeter Bach Society he will be conducting J.S. Bach's magnificent work. So I expect there'll be plenty of people from the town in the audience, as well as on stage.

Young soloists from London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama will feature in the performance along with the Exeter Bach Society Choir and Orchestra.

Founded in 1995, Exeter Bach Society is the only choral society in Exeter devoted to the life and works of J.S. Bach. As well as giving outstanding choral concerts, the Society regularly perform Bach's Cantatas in the Cathedral as the major part of the Evening Service on selected Sundays.

The B Minor Mass is being performed in St David's Church, Queens Terrace, in Exeter city centre, at 7.30 pm on Saturday 2 April 2011. Tickets are £15 unreserved (concessions for students and people on benefits) available online from Roger Churchward (01392 468867); Opus Classical (01393 214044), WeGotTickets via http://www.exeterbachsociety.org.uk/tickets.htm ; Exeter Phoenix, Gandy Street, Exeter (01392 667080), or, if still available, at the church door.
