Bernstein’s Mass in 2012

In 2011, last.fm stats showed that the things I listened to most were the newly released albums I’d enjoyed most. This year it hasn’t been quite like that – the release that racked up most listens was the original 1971 recording of Bernstein’s MASS. Much of the listening happened during August, when the BBC Proms encroached on my usual listening habits. The huge Welsh production of MASS was the most memorable of them (although the 4 hour long Cage centenary evening was pretty spectacular as well). My brother wrote a good blog about the MASS Prom, which is worth reading if you’re interested.
