We invited six brilliant, award-winning composers to create new works in
response to chorales from the *St Matthew Passion*. They had complete
freedom to choose their text, and we invited them to challenge, explore and
take risks. We are now beginning to explore their compositions in
rehearsals with Musical Director, David Hill. These new works will be
recorded later this year alongside the chorales that inspired them.
Online Choral Workshops

Join us on *Wednesday 26 May 2021 6.30-8.00pm BST* for a free online choral
workshop with David Hill, Musical Director of The Bach Choir. David will
lead some vocal warm-up exercises before leading singers through the chosen
repertoire. David will give tips before singers have the opportunity to
join in with a recording of the work.

These online events are free. For the meeting link and information on how
to access a copy of the music, please email

Due to COVID-19, all of our usual outreach activities have been paused
since March 2020. Determined to keep children singing, we decided to put
together a Virtual Choir Project for children to take part in at home.
Using the resources we provided, children from the UK and abroad learnt the
song ‘Love’ by Will Todd and Michael Rosen, and sent us their video
recordings. We combined them all into a celebratory choral collage.
*Howells Missa Sabrinensis*

On 1 May 2020, The Bach Choir completed its recordings of Howells' major
choral works with the monumental Missa Sabrinensis. Joining the Choir are
the BBC Concert Orchestra and soloists Helena Dix, Christine Rice, Benjamin
Hulett and Roderick Williams, conducted by David Hill.

Named for the Mass of the River Severn, the work pays tribute to the banks
of the English river where many of the country's greatest composers -
Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Finzi, Holst and Howells himself - had grown up.
An extended, complex setting of the Latin Mass, the Missa Sabrinensis is
the composer's most technically demanding and ambitious large-scale work
but, despite the massed forces, the intricate detail in Howells' complex
counterpoint comes across in this recording.
