Swansea Bach Choir has been invited to spend a weekend as choir-in-residence in the beautiful setting of Bath Abbey this August. It’s the first such invitation we have had for a number of years – since before the pandemic put a hiatus on so many of our plans.
It’s an enormous honour to be asked and we are very pleased about having the opportunity to spend
the weekend immersed in the choral and liturgical texts that we are busy preparing. We will be incorporating works by Rheinberger, Byrd, Stanford and more into our programme for the weekend, and we are very much looking forward to bringing our interpretations of these pieces to such a magnificent setting.
The choir will be singing at the following services across the weekend:
Saturday 6th August – 5pm – Choral Evensong
Sunday 7th August – 11.30am – Sung Eucharist
Sunday 7th August – 3.30pm – Choral Evensong
