Bach Mass in B Minor, Part 1: Kyrie & Gloria

The Mass in B Minor composed by J. S. Bach is considered by many to be the greatest and most profound musical setting of the Ordinary of the Mass. The massive opening Kyrie statement followed by the immense, solemn fugue launches us on one of the most epic of all journeys in music. This setting of the mass is unprecedented in its scale, majesty and sobriety.

Join us for a truly grand celebration of Bach’s 333rd birthday, as Dr. Michael Lancaster leads the more than 130 voices of the Asheville Symphony Chorus and members of the Asheville Symphony in this glorious work.
