In this year's spring concert, Durham Choral Society will be performing Johann Sebastian Bach's epic B Minor Mass. It was one of the Bach's last compositions, not being completed until 1749, the year before his death. It is not thought to have been performed in his lifetime, and indeed the first documented full performance didn't occur until over 100 years later. It is now widely recognised as one of the greatest works in musical history.

Conductor – Michael Summers
Leader – Julia Boulton-Moat
