Bach – Mass in B minor BWV 232 – Van Veldhoven | Netherlands Bach Society in 2022

Updated: 07-2022


Sublime, extreme and all-embracing… only superlatives will do to describe Bach’s Mass in B minor, the ‘Hohe Messe’, performed by the Netherlands Bach Society for All of Bach. In between an awe-inspiring Kyrie and the jubilant final Dona nobis pacem, there are nine completely unique arias and duets, fourteen impressive ensemble sections for four, five, six and even eight voices, a broad spectrum of instrumental solos, and an incredible variety of styles.

Recorded for the project All of Bach on December 15th 2016 at the Grote Kerk, Naarden. If you want to help us complete All of Bach, please subscribe to our channel or consider donating
