In February 2017 The Sixteen take Bach's towering masterpiece on tour to seven venues around the UK.

Written in Leipzig for the 1723 Christmas Vespers, its splendour and jubilation anticipates the great choruses of his later Mass in B minor. Performed alongside this will be a selection of Bach's Cantatas and his ever-popular Brandenburg Concerto No 3.
