The World's Greatest Music
Katherine introduces the three undisputed giants of the Baroque era - and the music that everyone should have in their collection.
Bach’s last major work, the Mass in B minor, was completed in 1749, the year before his death. In it, he set the complete Latin Mass which is very unusual for its time because Bach worked mainly in the Lutheran tradition. The Mass in B minor was not performed very much at all until a few performances in the 19th century triggered more interest. ‘Today it’s considered one of the greatest musical compositions ever,’ says Katherine.
