History

Established by the first Master of Music of Leicester Cathedral, conductors have included Paul Spicer of the Finzi singers, and Robert Hollingworth of i fagiolini. The collective legacy of our various conductors is an interest and expertise not only in performing the works of JS Bach but also in a wide repertoire of British and European music ranging from the fifteenth to the twenty-first centuries.

Mary Whittaker, for many years a singer with the Leicester Bach Choir, has written a fascinating history of the choir. The Leicester Mercury said “… a fascinating study of the choir, its officers and conductors, combining fact, personal reminiscence and programme detail.” If you would like a copy, download the PDF form and order a copy from Mary.
