About us

Bury Bach Choir is a group of enthusiastic people who love to perform the great choral works in wonderful surroundings. We are very fortunate to have an absolutely top class Music Director, and Rehearsal Accompanist, and our Co-Presidents are noted choral soloists.


We were founded in 1932 so have a long and interesting history. Over the years our repertoire has included all the great composers of choral music. We increase our horizons every year by mixing the familiar with the unfamiliar, including twentieth and twenty first century music.  


If you think you would like to sing with the choir, you are very welcome to come to one of our rehearsals and see if you like us.  Full details are given here.
