Midsummer Vespers

Saturday 3 July 2021  |  7.30pm, with staggered arrival times
Bath Abbey

For our long-awaited return to live singing, Bath Bach Choir presents Midsummer Vespers, a sacred programme with a light touch and a contemplative mood. Fanning out around the vibrant new space of Bath Abbey, we will be creating an atmospheric theatre of sound, with a mix of music early and modern by Tallis, Morales, Guerrero, Buxtehude, Rossini, Fauré, Gjeilo and Rachmaninov.

Young soloists Katie Bunney (saxophone) and Cassandra Dalby (mezzo-soprano) will join us on our journey back into the light, with Huw Williams to accompany and Nigel Perrin sculpting the sounds in this, his 31st year as music director of Bath Bach Choir.
