Release of Bach Mass in B Minor

Bach Mass in B MinorWe’re delighted to announce the release of our latest recording with Hyperion Records, of Johann Sebastian Bach’s glorious Mass in B Minor.

Directed by Stephen Layton, the choir joins forces with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, led by Margaret Faultless, and a company of excellent vocal and instrumental soloists.

The recording is the culmination of a four-year project to perform and record the work. The Choir and the OAE performed the work three times in St John’s Smith Square in December 2014, 2015 and 2016, as part of the Annual Christmas Festival.

The recording features three Choir alumni as soloists: Katherine Watson (soprano), Helen Charlston (mezzo-soprano) and Gwilym Bowen (tenor), and also features Iestyn Davies (countertenor) and Neal Davies (bass).
