with the Leodis Consort
Fri 29th March 2024 7:00pm
Ben Crick conductor
Ben Crick and Skipton Camerata join forces with the Leodis Consort to perform Bach’s late choral masterpiece.
Completed a year before his death, Bach’s great Mass in B minor is one of the pinnacles of human artistic achievement. Although conceived for the church, the B minor Mass expresses a full range of feelings conveying profound humanity whatever one’s beliefs.
For this performance Ben Crick and Skipton Camerata join forces with the Leodis Consort, a Leeds-based choir dedicated to delivering high-quality, historically informed performances that showcase the beauty and richness of early music.
2 hours 45 mins (including interval)
