Music City Baroque Wins Best of Nashville 2011BEST EARLY MUSIC GROUP:

Legendary choral conductor Robert Shaw once described J.S. Bach’s Mass in B minor as “God’s favorite piece of music.” No doubt, the Almighty is mighty pleased with Music City Baroque and its artistic director, Murray Somerville. The ensemble will present a rare period-instrument performance of the Mass in B minor — surely the crowning achievement of history’s greatest composer — on March 25 at St. George’s Episcopal Church. Since its founding in 2003, Music City Baroque has quickly emerged as the leading interpreter of Bach’s music in Nashville. It has also become the go-to group for annual holiday sing-alongs of Handel’s Messiah.
