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.
We greatly regret that the Coronavirus pandemic brought about the cancellation our final concert in June 2020. Arrangements for 2020-21 are under consideration currently, and it is hoped that a further announcement will be forthcoming in Autumn/Early Winter, 2020.
