The Great Escape - Music & More

Bach's four Lutheran Masses feature almost no Lutheran material at all. Sometimes called 'Missa brevis', musically they are almost entirely made up of movements borrowed from Bach's Cantatas. While often overshadowed by the more famous Mass in B minor, the beauty of these short Masses is that they represent Bach's own choice of his finest Cantata movements. Despite their exquisite beauty, featuring splendid choruses and deeply moving arias, there are relatively few recordings of the Masses. This collection combines The Sixteen's recordings into one collection. Just eight singers join The Sixteen's orchestra to perform the Masses, allowing the beauty of the virtuosic vocal lines to be heard with absolute clarity.
