Enjoy Bach's music in the magnificent Saint-Roch Church.
It took Johann Sebastian Bach more than twenty-five years to compose his Mass in B minor, and the least we can say is that the result easily explains it: of titanic dimensions, it undoubtedly constitutes one of the heights of the musician's art. The choral pages, in particular, require an unfailing vocal technique and collective discipline - they will be sung here by an ensemble of ten virtuoso soloists, as was undoubtedly the case during Bach's lifetime.
