Fiona Talkington presents a concert given at Milton Court, London, with a quartet of soloists, St James' Baroque and the BBC Singers under Paul Brough in Bach's Mass in B minor.

Fiona Talkington presents a concert recorded at Milton Court, London. Joined by a distinguished quartet of soloists and St James' Baroque, conductor Paul Brough directs the BBC Singers in one of the towering masterpieces of Western Civilisation, Johann Sebastian Bach's Mass in B minor. Finally completed in the last year of his life, the composer never heard the work in its entirety, but it stands as perhaps his greatest musical monument.

Concert recorded on 21/10/2016 at Milton Court, London.
