Bach Masses v.1 - Washington Bach Consort
The success of Bach's B-minor Mass has obscured a number of his shorter masterpieces of the same genre. Written in the 1730s these masses—which consist only of a Kyrie and Gloria setting—could be performed in both Catholic and Lutheran liturgies. Sometimes misleadingly called "The Lutheran Masses," Bach used them to gain recognition from the Catholic court of Dresden, which bestowed upon him the title "Electoral Saxon and Royal Polish Court Compositeur." Program notes by eminent Bach scholar Christoph Wolff.
