Polyphonic in Music is the art of creating multiple independent melodic lines, each with its own rhythm, and is an inspirational and timeless technique. From the Renaissance to the 20th century and beyond, great composers such as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and Debussy have dazzled audiences with their intricate and beautiful polyphonic works.

Kent Tritle and The Oratorio Society ensured that the ineffable rapture of J. S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor was ably expressed while articulating the vision, technique, Affektenlehre, and unparalleled harmonic sense of the music. We also experienced the intended fulfillment of harmonic tension and what one might consider to be Bach the Baroque in music. The concert performance was breathtaking, the glorias were splendid, and the closing Dona nobis pacem was exquisite.
