J.S. Bach's Mass in B Minor - "Kyrie"
I started a new project a few weeks ago collaborating with Matthew Olson and his Oratory Bach Ensemble to interpret Bach's Mass in B Minor. I will be painting four interpretations which will accompany Matt's first annual Bach Roots Music Festival taking place in Minneapolis June 16-24 with concerts on June 21 at Summit Center for the Arts in St. Paul and June 22 at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in So. Mpls.
This is a cropping from the first painting interpreting the beginning Kyries. Kyrie Eleison "Lord, have mercy" and Kyrie Christe Eleison "Christ Have Mercy". I will be featuring a few croppings along the way as I work on these paintings and will show you the completed work when I get them scanned in early June. Listen to the opening of Bach's masterful work below.
