Osanna are an Italian psychedelic rock/ progressive rock band.
The Mass in B minor is Johann Sebastian Bach's only setting of the complete Latin text of the la, Order of Mass, Ordinarium missae (short: mass). Wolf, 2011 Towards the end of his life, mainly in 1748 and 1749, he composed it as a complex symmetric structure.
Some parts of the mass were used in Latin even in Lutheran Leipzig, and Bach had composed them: five settings of the Missa, containing '' gr, Kyrie'' and '' la, Gloria in Excelsis Deo, Gloria'', and several additional settings of '' gr, Kyrie'' and '' la, Sanctus''. To achieve the '' la, Missa brevis, Missa tota'', a setting of the complete text of the mass, he combined his most elaborate '' la, Missa, BWV 232a, Missa'', BWV 232a, written in 1733 for the court in Dresden, and a '' la, Sanctus'', written for Christmas of 1724. He added a few new compositions, but mostly derived movements from cantata movements, in the technique known as parody.
The Mass "represents Bach's last major artistic undertaking". It is a compendium of his styles in vocal composition, containing Gregorian chant, " stile antico" reminiscent of Renaissance music and the Baroque concertante style of his own time, fugal writing and dances, arias and a movement for two four-part choirs. Formally, the mass is a la, missa solemnis. Similar to architecture of the period, Bach achieved a symmetry of parts, with the profession of faith ('' la, Credo'') in the center and the movement '' la, Crucifixus'' in its center. Bach scored the work for five vocal parts (two sopranos, alto, tenor and bass, SSATB). While some choral movements are for only four parts, the '' la, Sanctus'' is scored for six voices (SSAATB), and the la, Osanna even for two four-part choirs. Bach called for a rich instrumentation of brass, woodwinds and strings, assigning specific varied obbligato parts to different instruments.
Bach structured the work in four parts: J.S. Bach Mass in B Minor, 1996
