    Bach's Mass in B minor is undoubtedly his most spectacular choral work and the Dunedin Consort's soloist-led performance enables a level of clarity and expression that is not traditionally a feature of modern choral performance.

    The Dunedin Consort's recording of Bach's Mass in B Minor revisits the spectacular individual virtuosity that made the Messiah recording so successful. This is the premiere recording of the work in the new Breitkopf edition, edited by Joshua Rifkin, a leading thinker in authentic period performance, who fully endorses John Butt's interpretation.

    Bach's Mass capitalizes on the very essence of the group's skills: skilled virtuosic choral performance coupled with outstanding, characterful solo singing. Bach's Mass in B minor is undoubtedly his most spectacular choral work and the Dunedin Consort's single-voice performance enables a level of clarity and expression that is not traditionally a feature of modern choral performance. This recording features several soloists from the acclaimed recording of Bach's Matthew Passion, which was named BBC Music Magazine's Benchmark Recording.
