Sheffield Bach Choir – the choir of the Sheffield Bach Society

Formed in 1950, Sheffield Bach Choir, one of the longest-established choirs in a city profoundly rich in terms of cultural heritage, was founded to revive public interest in the music of Bach.

Each year we perform at least one major Bach choral work, presenting his three great works – the B Minor Mass and the St Matthew and St John Passions – in a three-year rotation, along with Handel’s Messiah in December. In addition, each season sees a minimum of three further concerts of diverse classical repertoire. Most of our concerts are held in Sheffield’s Anglican Cathedral; the June concert is usually at St Mark’s in Broomhill.

Members will find arrangements for rehearsals from September 2021, on the Members site

Sheffield Bach Choir’s illustrious conductor Dr Roger Bullivant was born 100 years ago, and we remember him with great fondness. Read our special feature, compiled to celebrate Dr Bullivant’s 100th anniversary.
