About

Believing that the chorus parts are of a complexity even greater than that of the solo parts, Jordi Savall handpicked for this recording an 'academy' of young singers destined for careers as solo professionals. The technical and artistic quality of the result obtained after several weeks of rehearsal is beyond superlatives. Jordi Savall chose to adapt the number of singers in each section of Bach's sublime Mass, in his first recording of a vocal work by Bach, after giving reference versions of the Brandenburg Concertos, the Art of the Fugue and the Musical Offering.

A luxurious 4 disc set:
DVD1: Mass in B minor captured at Fontfroide Festival in 2011 in the nave of the Abbey Church
DVD2: documentary 'Bach and Savall in Fontfroide' about the rehearsals of the Mass in B minor (French only)
2 HYBRID SACDs: Bach's Mass in B minor - Audio multichannel version of the concert
