William Christie - Conductor

One of the supreme monuments of western sacred music, the Mass in B minor has been constantly re-examined by successive generations of performers. The questions it raises for musicologists and conductors are many and varied; each of them strives to give his or her own reading with the necessary humility. It was in this frame of mind that William Christie tackled the work in the course of a memorable tour in 2016. These discs enshrine the result.
