The Bach Choir’s 140th season of concerts is now on sale.  Find out more here.

David Hill writes:

“I am delighted and privileged to welcome you to The Bach Choir’s 140th season of concerts, in which we mark our anniversary with a performance of Bach’s Mass in B minor, the work for which The Bach Choir was founded back in 1876.

What better way to begin than with another celebration – the 70th birthday of our President, John Rutter.  I am honoured to hand the baton to him for the London premiere of his new work The Gift of Life:  Six Canticles of Creation, in St Paul’s Cathedral on 5 November.

After no fewer than six concerts of carols and Christmas music, including Handel’s Messiah, we offer you three of the greatest choral works of all time:  Beethoven’s Symphony No 9, Bach’s St Matthew Passion and, of course, the Mass in B minor, before we conclude the season with the world premiere performance of the latest Bach Choir commission:  Lights, Stories, Noise, Dreams, Love and Noodles by the enormously talented young composer Will Todd.

I look forward very much to welcoming you to our concerts!”
