Mass in B-minor
Kyrie Kyrie eleison Christe eleison Kyrie eleison
Gloria Gloria in excelsis Et in terra pax Laudamus te
Gratias agimus tibi Domine Deus Qui tollis peccata mundi
Qui sedes ad dextram Patris Quoniam tu solus sanctus Cum Sancto Spiritu

Agnus Dei Dona nobis pacem

"Long and frequent rehearsals have brought this performance about. After ... the wage-earning day, these ... Master Singers have converged on time at a rehearsal spot for two hours or more ... once, twice, or even three times a week for almost a year. [Those] Master Singers ... joined the ranks of those who have sung the B Minor Mass. -- Marjorie Otis Gifford from Spring 1988 concert progam notes.
