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 Exeter Cathedral. The cantata services (when we are accompanied by players from the Exeter Bach Society 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 Cantata 70 at Exeter Cathedral, Bach’s Easter Oratorio, and Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in December 2015.
Our current musical director, Simon Capet, joined the society in September 2015.
