Bach’s towering masterpiece, the Mass in B Minor has long been one of our favourite pieces and a regular feature of our programming, so there could be no better choice of work for our latest commercial recording. Bach brought together some of his greatest and most exuberant music to provide a glorious celebration of the Baroque.

What the press said
...warm-toned, well-sustained choral singing; meticulously articulated instrumental work… The Times
The blending and attack are exemplary… a continuity of tone between chorus and soloists which is utterly beguiling. Choir and Organ Magazine
The sense of uninhibited joy and praise is exhilarating… This excellent performance ranks among the best.
BBC Music Magazine
Seymour's encouragement to follow the meaning of each line with unstudied conviction [is] most beautifully realised in the irradiating mysteries of the 'Et incarnatus' and 'Crucifixus'. Gramophone, November 2011
