J.S. Bach's B Minor Mass

The Mass in B Minor is such an established part of the choral repertoire that it may come as a surprise to learn that it is also an enigmatic work. For example, at what point did Bach, a Lutheran Protestant, plan to write a full Roman Catholic Mass? And did Bach himself really intend the full work to be performed on a single occasion?

St Michael's and All Angels

The Parish Church of S Michael and All Angels is one of the finest Victorian churches in the country and is Grade 1 listed. Known as the 'cathedral of the back streets', it is a profoundly moving building, consisting of two churches made one. The first was designed by George Frederick Bodley and built in 1861-62, and this is now the south aisle of the cathedral-like nave, completed in 1893-95 to a design by William Burges.

It is noted for its fine architecture, sculpture and woodwork, as well as its magnificent collection of stained glass windows, in the south aisle by the pre-Raphaelites, William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones, Ford Madox-Brown, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Philip Webb, and in the north aisle by Kempe & Tower.
