On this edition of Exploring Music, host Bill McGlaughlin examines Bach's B minor Mass, a not-so-minor masterpiece of tremendous proportions. Along the way, as we hear the mass itself, we examine some of Bach's earlier masses, composers who inspired Bach, and work from the future by Haydn, Beethoven and Strauss that would draw from Bach's example.
