A forty strong choir renowned for its performances of Baroque music

creating sensational music - together

The Swansea Bach Choir was formed in 1965 with the aim of presenting the very best choral works from the past five centuries, to as wide a public as possible, and in as professional and authentic a manner as possible.  Many of its forty members are trained singers, music students, and teachers of music.

Greg is Musical Director of Swansea Bach Choir, Bracknell Choral Society and Reading Festival Chorus.


Recently, Greg has been working with Mahogony Opera Group as Music Director for their 'Snappy Operas' – teaching and conducting ten newly-commissioned 10-minute operas to children in Cornwall, Durham and Essex.

People Cheering


"Is there a better way to relax in the frantic build-up to Christmas than to sit back and absorb the wonderful tones of the Swansea Bach Choir" 

South Wales Evening Post

"Marvellous Waves of Sound" 

Neil Reeve of Seen and Heard International.

"Rarely have I seen a performance of this wonderful creation with such clarity and conviction.  The Swansea Bach Choir, known for its near perfect performances of many of the great sacred works…takes some beating."

South Wales Evening Post

"The choir, always sensitive to the highly musical and intelligent interpretations of their director, John Hugh Thomas, came into its own here.  Their sound was rich, the words clear, and the drama of the crucifixion scene subtly reflected."
