T. Herbert Dimmock leads the full Bach in Baltimore Choir and Orchestra and four superb vocal soloists in the performance of Bach's magnum opus, the Mass in B minor. This work represents Bach's lifelong and tireless artistry as a composer and musician of the highest caliber. It is a grand synthesis of his every musical innovation and contribution. Bach began the Mass in B minor early in his career and didn't finish it until the end of his life when he had already gone blind. He never had the chance to hear a complete performance of his masterpiece that weaves together conventions common to both Lutheran and Catholic masses – but you can. Bach's virtuosity in Mass in B minor is an inspiring testament to dogged determination, supreme craftsmanship, and profound spiritual belief. The Mass in B minor is regarded as one of the greatest achievements of Western Civilization and arguably the greatest single musical piece ever written!
