  1. Mass in B minor BWV 232 - Johann Sebastian Bach

The biennial Grand Baroque series returns with a flourish in 2022, bringing perhaps the most grand of all baroque works to life in Exeter Cathedral, Mass in B minor by JS Bach

Bach was feeling his years when he completed the full mass sequence, but he was also making a statement about the immensely inventive and complex musical legacy he was leaving, much of it unrecognised in his lifetime.

The work will be recreated in the expert hands of BEMP's principal director JanJoost van Elburg with a hand picked choir of singers from all over the UK and western Europe. The orchestra will be led by Oliver Webber with members of the Monteverdi String Band and other invited players from this country's wealth of expert period instrumentalists. JanJoost is a consummate and widely acknowledged interpreter of Bach's work.

The soloists Amy Haworth (soprano), Mark Dobell (tenor) and Jimmy Holliday (bass), are all highly regarded singers in their own right, as well as singing with ensembles such as The Sixteen, The Tallis Scholars and the Gabrieli Consort and many other prominent vocal groups: countertenor Guy James of the Gesualdo Six completes the solo line up, and is a rising star in the early music world.
