The Bach Choir, formed in 1876 to give the first performance in Britain of Bach’s B minor Mass, sings a program of recent British compositions for choir, brass, organ, and percussion, including John Rutter’s popular Gloria. Sir David Willcocks has been director of the Bach Choir since 1960. The virtuoso brass ensemble known as The Wallace Collection is joined by percussionists and organist Jane Watts.
