Choral music offers few loftier spiritual or artistic challenges than Bach’s B Minor Mass – but then, few living performers are better-equipped to tackle it than conductor, scholar and baroque music specialist Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists. “Bach has always been part of my life”, says Gardiner, for whom this music “leaps over all the boundaries of nationality, of date, of period”. At the pinnacle of a career devoted to studying, contemplating and performing Bach, Gardiner’s interpretations share an overwhelming conviction. In the 18th century surroundings of St Martin-in-the-Fields this sacred masterpiece will never have sounded more alive.

St Martin-in-the-Fields is the London home of the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists.
