Yorkshire Baroque Soloists

This concert offers the mouth watering opportunity to hear three separate JS Bach masterpieces. The Easter and Ascension Oratorios are characterised by their festive orchestration and exhilarating trumpet-led choruses which will feature the outstanding playing of Crispian Steele-Perkins. Despite its relative brevity, the Mass in G minor is an assembly of some of Bach’s most glorious choral writing. All three works feature arias which range in style from the contemplative to the celebratory performed by soloists drawn from within the choir.
