Johannes Passion, JS Bach - Southwell Minster 2nd April, 2022
The inspirational surroundings of Southwell Minster will play host to April’s performance of JS Bach’s St John Passion, surely one of the most dramatic, rapturously beautiful, sometimes tear-jerkingly sorrowful yet unalloyed and unaffectedly emotional, devotional, and life-changingly inspirational pieces of music that has ever been written. The Nottingham Bach Choir and Players will be joined by a stellar cast of soloists led by evangelist William Balkwill (Westminster Abbey).
Brahms, Finzi and Holst - St Mary's Church Nottingham 25th June, 2022
In the Summer, we present a selection of music by Brahms (including the beautiful ‘Song of Destiny’), Finzi’s stirring setting of the Magnificat and Holst’s famous eight-part Nunc Dimittis. Alongside these choral masterpieces, the programme will include art song performed by the winner of the Nottingham Bach Choir’s Liz Chant Bursary award, Emily Hodkinson. In an exciting innovation, this concert will start at 3pm, last about an hour and be followed by tea and cake!
