There are a few works in the vast sacred music repertoire of the last five centuries that inspire the listener more than all the others [Handel’s Messiah, Mozart’s Requiem, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, Mendelssohn’s Paulus and Elijah, and Verdi’s Requiem are outstanding examples], but the one work that shines out among them all is the great B-minor Mass of Johann Sebastian Bach. It encapsulates 25 years of composition to the Glory of God; after all Bach himself signed his sacred works “SDG : Soli Deo Gloria”. Be sure never to miss this Mass when it is performed at a venue near you!
