From the first performance in Britain of Bach’s Mass in B minor to the soundtrack for Ridley Scott’s epic Prometheus, the Choir’s musical heritage is as rich as it is diverse. Directed by David Hill, one of the country’s most eminent conductors and choir trainers, The Bach Choir regularly performs and records across London and the UK in prestigious venues, from the Royal Albert Hall to Abbey Road Studios, and undertakes concert tours all over the world.
With a strong commitment to new music, The Bach Choir has commissioned works from some of the world’s leading composers including Sir John Tavener, Jonathan Dove and Carl Rütti. The Angry Planet was commissioned by The Bach Choir from Bob Chilcott, and given its world premiere by the Choir, along with the BBC Singers, the National Youth Choir, and over 200 children from Outreach projects undertaken by The Bach Choir and the BBC, in the Royal Albert Hall in August 2012, as part of the BBC Promenade concerts. The Bach Choir’s pioneering Outreach work in London schools, in partnership with the Tri-Borough Music Hub, has led to the formation of The Young Singers, an auditioned choir of talented children, who have performed with The Bach Choir in Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, and in the world premiere of Jonathan Dove’s Psalms for Leo.
Together with David Hill, The Bach Choir has built up an exciting discography of English music, including Howells’s Hymnus paradisi and Stabat Mater, Vaughan Williams’s Sancta civitas and Dona nobis pacem, David Matthews’s Vespers, and a disc of music by Charles Villiers Stanford.
