Magnum Opus: Bach’s B-Minor Mass


It is with great pleasure that we perform B-Minor Mass, the piece that Colorado Bach Ensemble played to launch our inaugural season in 2012. Although this sublime work is considered to be Bach’s magnum opus, or greatest achievement, there is no official record of it being performed in its entirety during the composer’s lifetime. He composed the first two movements in 1733, but it wasn’t until just before his death that Bach expanded it into a complete Mass setting. Join us to experience this extraordinary and universal music.
