Personal record of the score of Mass in B minor (BWV 232), music manuscript with 99 pages, the Mass in B minor is Johann Sebastian Bach’s last choral work and is showcased as his musical legacy. Even more than 250 years after the completion of the recording, Bach’s manuscript continues to fascinate viewers: Bach’s calligraphic script, his energetic flow, the distribution of notes on the page, the musical rhythm, which becomes noticeable while viewing, – all this lends the manuscript a unique aura. It is among the most frequently performed and presented works in classical music.
