With the Mass in B Minor, Johann Sebastian Bach not only composed music that sinks deep into the soul but also created the legacy of a musical epoch. But how can a mass be transferred into the 21st century? Elina Albach transforms this formative work of church music into innovatively conceived early music. The impressive seven instrumentalists and six singers are combined with texts by the author Jürg Halter for a theological-contemporary reflection. The Swiss refers to the liturgy and present challenges with poetic alternating and answering songs.
