  1. Heyr þú oss himnum á - Anna Þorvaldsdóttir
  2. Mass in B minor BWV 232 - Johann Sebastian Bach

Bach’s Mass in B minor is an inspired reworking of compositions from different periods of his life, drawn together in his final years. The result is a choral masterpiece that uses the full range of musical styles Bach explored in the course of his career, and one that stretches the stamina and technique of singers and players alike. As such, the Mass could be seen as the ultimate Bach showcase: a unified expression of his genius as a composer.

Anna Thorvaldsdottir wrote Heyr þú oss himnum á - Hear us in heaven - for the Skálholt Summer Concert Series, August 2005. The work is written from an old Icelandic psalm by Olafur á Söndum (1560–1627). Of the many verses in the psalm, this work uses four of them.

For this performance, the Crouch End Festival Chorus is delighted to collaborate with The Hanover Band, one of the UK’s finest period instrument orchestras, as well as four outstanding soloists.
