(The choir)…” delivered a vocal crescendo that provoked a prickle of goose bumps, and a desire to close your eyes and lose yourself in the glorious sound …. “When it finished, I just wanted to hear it all over again ” (Scotsman March 2014)
Comments from a review of our spring concert this year, which celebrated 21 years of performances under the baton of Musical Director Neil Mantle, M.B.E. The programme included “An Die Musik” - a specially commissioned work to mark the occasion by Andrew J Smith, an English composer currently based in Oslo.
The Edinburgh Bach Choir performs three concerts a year with up to 100 singers. One concert a year is usually dedicated to JS Bach. In addition we have sung a wide repertoire in recent years, ranging from 16th to 20th century composers: Monteverdi to Constant Lambert, Byrd to Durufle, Handel to Stravinsky.
You can read about our future concerts on the concerts page. You can also view the list of concerts we have performed over the years. If you are interested in joining or supporting the activities of the Edinburgh Bach Choir you can find out more information by visiting the membership section of the website.
