BACH B-MINOR MASS
April 12th, 7:30pm
Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul
126 Coming Street
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!
