J.S. Bach Mass in B minor
London Handel Orchestra
St John’s Smith Square, London
Monday, 13 June
BAPAM invites you to a special performance of J.S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor at St John’s Smith Square in London on Monday 13 June at 7:30pm. Discounted ticket prices are available to supporters of BAPAM, and income from these tickets will support our work.
Bach composed his Mass in B minor over a period of a quarter of a century, and it was not performed complete in his lifetime. Even today, the Mass remains one of the supreme challenges for choirs, soloists and orchestras—a many-faceted work that is grand, lyrical, intimate and ultimately transcendent.
We are excited to be associated with the performance on 13 June, which will be given by the London Handel Orchestra and Pegasus Choir, with a stellar roster of internationally acclaimed soloists— Julia Doyle (soprano), Renata Pokupic (mezzo-soprano), Charles Daniels (tenor) and Stephan Loges (bass), directed by Adrian Butterfield. The London Handel Orchestra’s performance of Bach’s St Matthew Passion at St John’s Smith Square in 2015, directed by Adrian Butterfield, was described by one reviewer as the most perfectly performed musical experience in many years (musicOMH). For the Mass in B Minor, Pegasus, one of London’s leading chamber choirs, join the same orchestra and director, with whom they are frequent collaborators.
The choir performed a benefit concert for BAPAM in 2014, and we are delighted that they have offered us the chance to be associated with the performance on 13 June.
