Glorious duets, intense four-part choir writing, joyous outpourings and beautiful solo obligatos.

The incomparable magnificence of this late Bach masterpiece is signalled from the very outset. This genius work is a complex fusion of Bach cantatas and choruses based on plainchant.

A Mass loaded with artistic innovation and religious conviction taking the listener from deep despair to a triumphant conclusion of majestic praise and gratitude to God. 

World renowned choral Maestro Stephen Layton directs a fine cast of singers, alongside Brisbane Chamber Choir and The University of Queensland Chamber Singers.
