Concert Synopsis

Join David Hill and members of The Bach Choir for a choral training day on Saturday 7 May 2016 in the church of St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, Giltspur Street, London EC1A 9DE. Rehearse and perform  choruses from Bach’s Mass in B minor under the direction of one of the country’s leading conductors and choir trainers.

The timetable for the day will be:

  • 10.30am  Arrival and Registration
  • 11.15am  Warm-up
  • 11.30am  Rehearsal
  • 1.00pm  Lunch break
  • 2.00pm  Rehearsal
  • 3.45pm  Break
  • 4.30pm  Performance
  • 5.20pm  Event ends

We will be using the Bärenreiter Edition (BA 5102a).  If you have your own copy, please check carefully that you have the correct edition; otherwise you can hire a copy from us for just £3.00. As in previous years, David Hill would like everyone to use the same edition otherwise valuable time will be wasted on the day.

Because of the number of choruses in the work, it may not be possible for David Hill to work on them all during the day. The intention is to study all sections of the Mass but to leave out parts of the Credo as follows: Et resurrexit and Et expecto will be included, but other choruses in the Credo are likely to be omitted.

Toilet facilities are available at the church.

Tickets are £20.00 for singers; £5.00 for Audience members; and £5.00 for Students or those in full-time education (singing or audience).

WE REGRET THAT THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT.  PLEASE TELEPHONE OUR BOX OFFICE ON 020 7127 9114 TO ADD YOUR NAME TO THE WAITING LIST.

Teas, coffees, bottled water and biscuits will be available for purchase on the day. For lunches, there are plenty of local cafes nearby, serving drinks and snacks; alternatively singers are welcome to bring packed lunches and eat them in the church.
