Bristol Bach Choir presents a double musical celebration in a way perfectly matched to its name: the music of J.S. Bach, and music by contemporary Bristol Composers to mark the 650th anniversary of the city’s Royal Charter.

The choir will perform Bach’s glorious Magnificat in D major and Cantata 129 which both alternate stunning solo arias with stirring choruses, and the brief double-choir Cantata 50. These will be accompanied by the Bristol Ensemble using period instruments to provide the authentic sounds which Bach would have expected. As a compliment to these works the choir will perform beautiful choral music by some of Bristol’s most prominent composers, including Raymond Warren, John Pickard, Maya Kitay, and a commission by Esther Bersweden which will receive its premiere performance. It promises to be a memorable night of glorious music-making.

Tickets £24, £18 (reserved), £10 (unreserved), students and under 18s £5, available online at www.bristolbach.org.uk/autumn-concert-2023-j-s-bach/
