JS BACH | Mass in B Minor

Programme

JS BACH  Mass in B Minor

About This Concert

Join Southampton Philharmonic Choir, Southampton University Philharmonic Choir and the superlative Hanover Band for a performance of Bach’s Mass in B Minor. One of the jewels of the baroque period, the work is almost a catalogue of Bach’s musical styles and techniques and was perhaps the last piece of music that he worked on before his death in 1750. The Hanover Band is one of Britain’s finest period instrument orchestras, comprising some of the best period instrument specialists in the UK. The combination of the performers and the venue can only serve to make this evening a memorable one.

The Hanover Band

HANOVER (Not Hannover; Germany) In terms of British history the majority of the music we play is from the Hanoverian period. Hanover also refers to Hanover Square in London, where Haydn performed his symphonies and arias in the Salomon Concerts in the 1790’s.

BAND (ref: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians)
‘An instrumental ensemble, larger than a chamber ensemble. Thus the ’24 violins’ of Louis XIV were called ‘la grande bande’ to distinguish them from Lully’s ‘petits violons’, and Charles II’s similar ensemble was known as ‘the King’s Band’. By extension, ‘band’ came to mean an orchestra in colloquial British usage’.

THE HANOVER BAND a period name for a period orchestra.
