Bath Bach Choir each year brings Christmas to Bath with its Carols by Candlelight, a programme that blends the traditional with the original, the festive with the fantastic. The choir was conducted by Nigel Perrin, whose humour created a warm and relaxed atmosphere, encouraging the audience regularly into song throughout the evening – an evening that lifted spirits and brought home the true magic of Christmas. Hearing Bath Bach Choir proved to be a real treat, one I will not reserve for just Christmastime.
