Bath Bach Choir, formed in 1946, sings a broad and exciting repertoire from the great sacred works of Bach to the cool, secular motets of Whitacre, bringing joy, passion and precision to everything we perform. Since 1990 the internationally renowned and inspirational Nigel Perrin has been our Musical Director, bringing demanding standards and fun to our rehearsals and brilliance to our public performances.
Bath Bach Choir Quirentine Lockdown Recording Project, May 2020
Cantique de Jean Racine by Gabriel Fauré
As the pandemic continues to disrupt our lives, we have been meeting ‘virtually’ to sing
in isolation from our homes – apart but together as a community. Through a collective spirit of willingness to follow new paths and explore what can be achieved through technology, we have recorded and produced this video. For a choir, singing in isolation requires us all to take our imaginations for a walk. We hope this piece inspires you to do the same, and we look forward to seeing you again on the other side.
