About

A monumental piece of music at Notre-Dame de Paris, a monument of art history.

The Mass in B Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach transcends categories: neither religious nor profane, it is full of fervour, contemplation and emotion; neither Lutheran nor Catholic, it is both, therefore transcending the very principle of ecumenism. A monumental piece of music at Notre-Dame de Paris, a monument of art history. Performing this piece in the cathedral with the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris (formerly known as Ensemble Orchestral de Paris), which he has conducted since 1998, was a dream of the conductor John Nelson.

Stage director Olivier Simonnet provided a very talented scenography for the performance: the cathedral not only provides a setting for a concert, it is also an artistic element in the performance. The cast is composed of Major international soloists such as Ruth Ziesak, Joyce DiDonato, Daniel Taylor, Paul Agnew and Dietrich Henschel.
