The Canticum Novum Singers Present J.S. Bach Mass in B Minor on May 19 at St. Jean Baptiste Church in New York, New York
 
The Canticum Novum Singers, Harold Rosenbaum, Conductor and Artistic Director will present J.S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor on Saturday, May 19 - 8:00 PM at St. Jean Baptiste Church, 76th St. and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan.
 
Guest performers will be Tiffany Rosenquist de la Torre, soprano, Meg Bragle, mezzo-soprano, Steven Caldicott Wilson, tenor, Jesse Blumberg, baritone and the Artemis Chamber Ensemble.
 
Maestro Rosenbaum has written about the piece, “When I listen to Bach, I am immediately transported into another realm. There is a journey towards ecstasy. What joy and amazement and upliftment I feel. However, since his level of genius and spiritual depth are totally incomprehensible to me, I am always left with a sense of powerlessness and helplessness. This doesn’t prevent me from marveling at, basking in, and loving the experience. But deep within me, I am agonizing because the experience is utterly unbearable. I will never fully understand it all.”
