    During the last four years of his life, Johann Sebastian Bach worked on a piece that he knew would represent the summation of his life’s work.

    In the end, the material of Bach’s almighty Mass in B minor was almost two decades in the making – a compilation of some of his finest vocal music woven together with startlingly original new music born of acute inspiration.

    William Christie conducts Bach’s Mass with a quartet of soloists and his own ensemble Les Arts Florissants, known for its historically informed and infectiously exciting performances of Baroque music.
