One of the great choral masterpieces, Bach's monumental Mass in B-minor - a setting of the complete Roman Catholic Mass by a Luther Protestant - is a magnificent synthesis of Italian melodic invention, French rhythmic dance forms and German contrapuntal mastery. Written over two decades and completed the year before Bach's death, it can be viewed as a retrospective of a lifetime's work and the ultimate affirmation of his religious faith.
