Description

FRANK MARTIN: Mass for Double Choir

J.S BACH: Motet: Komm, Jesu komm BWV 229

and other works for Double Choir

The Choir of the Bach Collegium San Diego

Frank Martin's Mass for Double Choir and Bach's Komm, Jesu, komm serves as the catalyst for exploring vocal textures; from the intimacy of four-part writing, to the expansive breadth of eight-parts. Martin's Mass for Double Choir stands as one of the finest a cappella works ever written, with influences ranging from chant, to Renaissance polyphony to above all, Bach. Bach's Komm, Jesu, komm is a benchmark of contrapuntal writing and musical rhetoric and displays in high degree the compositional practices taken up by Frank Martin in his Mass for Double Choir. A golden opportunity to hear some of the finest vocal music ever written covering a span of over two centuries, and eloquently performed by the Choir of BCSD.
