Rogue Valley Chorale 1985-1986
Mass in B Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, November 24 and 25, 1985
The Mass in B Minor represented one of the most significant achievements in the Chorale’s history. Bach’s masterpiece was completed in 1748, with individual parts composed and performed earlier. The complete B Minor Mass was first heard in Leipzig, Germany, in 1859. The Rogue Valley first heard it performed 126 years later.
