B Minor Mass Poster-3.jpg


Sestina | Peter Whelan, Director

Bach's 'Mass in B Minor' is an extraordinary work, completed a year before Bach's death. The magnificence of this piece still shines brightly today, through both the serenity and deep contemplation of quieter moments juxtaposed with glorious celebration. The phenomenal voices of Sestina join with the IBO for this performance, with solos taken by members of the choir.

This performance takes place with the kind support of the CAF American Donor Fund and RTÉ Supporting the Arts
