Reflect on Bach’s choral masterwork for all time: a synthesis of spiritual beauty and technical perfection.

“The music of this supreme Mass and its performance were simply out of this world.” – The Globe and Mail (on 2011 Tafelmusik performance)

Bach’s B-Minor Mass towers as one of the supreme pieces of music ever written and it’s a beloved work of Tafelmusik Choir and Orchestra. Whether you are a performer or listener, this piece captivates your heart and soul from the very opening notes of the Kyrie to the majestic close of the Dona nobis pacem. Time stands still as the energy of the Credo, beauty of the Benedictus, and glory of the Gratias inspire contemplation of life and the power of music.

Bach never heard it performed in its entirety—that is a privilege reserved for us.
