The Exeter Bach Society is an SATB choir based in central Exeter, Devon, specialising in the choral works of Johann Sebastian Bach. We give two or three full-length concerts per year, usually with orchestral support, with additional recitals of Bach’s Cantatas at local churches. The cantata services, accompanied by the society’s orchestra, are followed by a special event comprising a recital or a talk usually connected in some way with J S Bach or the Baroque period. We also run an annual choral workshop with conductors of national repute.
Recent performances have included a summer concert of varied music at the University of Exeter Chapel, Bach’s Cantata 41 at Exeter Cathedral, Bach’s Mass in B Minor, and Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in December 2015.
Our current musical director, Jonathan Lucas Wood, joins the society in September 2016.
