Hear Us
The Northampton Bach Choir is one of the foremost choruses in the region, and the largest choir in the county, numbering some 130 singers.

It owes its formation to Denys Pouncey, a former organist of St Matthew’s Church, giving its first concert there on Palm Sunday 1935. During its time it has nurtured a series of young, enthusiastic, not to say visionary, musical directors, many of whom have gone on to forge careers of national and international significance....

  The remaining date for our 2022 season is our Sacred Spaces event at St Albans Cathedral - which we will be visiting for the first time. The Northampton Bach Choir's programme of cathedral visits In sacred spaces began in 2012, and including this visit will have sung at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford; Coventry Cathedral; Gloucester Cathedral; Lichfield Cathedral; Peterborough Cathedral; St George’s Chapel, Windsor, St Paul’s Cathedral; Westminster Abbey; Winchester Cathedral and Worcester Cathedral.
