Bach’s Mass in B minor is a mighty response to life’s terrible silences and the pinnacle of Bach’s quest for musical perfection. Being part of a performance, whether as audience or singer, can be a truly life-changing experience. English Touring Opera’s soloists collaborate with local Sheffield singers to build this cathedral of sound – including many performers who took part in last year’s extraordinary performance of another of Bach’s masterpieces, the St John Passion.
SongMakers is a project-based choir formed especially for University of Sheffield Concerts' performance of Bach’s B Minor Mass, in collaboration with English Touring Opera. Led by Timothy Peters and featuring Viva Voce, Octogenesis, and singers from Sheffield’s Philharmonic Chorus, Bach Choir, Cathedral Choir and University Chamber Choir, this choral-collective combines singers from all corners of the city, representing the breadth and diversity of singing Sheffield is proud to boast.
