We very much regret having to do this, but think it safer for both performers and audience. However, we hope to re-programme this concert in 2020-21. If you would like to be advised if this takes place, please email: email@example.com

Over nearly 50 years, the choir has built a reputation for singing repertoire by less well known composers, as well as lesser known pieces by the great composers – and that adventurous musical spirit can certainly be seen in this programme. There is something familiar here: J S Bach’s beloved and beautiful motet Jesu meine Freude. But alongside that the choir will perform his less well known Mass in G minor, as well as the motet Das ist meine Freude by Johan Ludwig Bach.
Johan Ludwig Bach was an almost exact contemporary of his more famous second cousin. He made his career in the court at Saxe Meiningen, and his motet writing provides a fascinating contrast to J S Bach’s – it’s much lighter and more Italianate.The choir will be accompanied by organist Iestyn Evans, and joined by four soloists from the Royal Academy of Music.
