BACH B-MINOR MASS

April 13th, 8:00pm

Location TBD

 

The Taylor Festival Choir collaborates with the Charleston

Symphony and the College of Charleston Madrigal Singers in

a performance J.S. Bach’s magesterial Mass in B-minor.

Completed in 1749, one year before Bach’s death, the work

was never heard in its entirety in Bach’s lifetime, and its first

documented complete performance was not until 1859. Since

then, the B-minor Mass has come to be regarded by many as

not only Bach’s greatest work, but possibly the greatest

single composition of all-time. 

 

This performance celebrates conductor Rob Taylor’s 20-year

anniversary season as Director of Choral Activities at the

College of Charleston!
