Winter Concert 2019

Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 7.30pm - St. Swithin's Church, Walcot Street, Bath

Our Christmas concert in St Swithin’s church will feature the world-premiere of Gavin Carr’s Angels’ Feet Cantata – written expressly for the choir by its much-loved Director, this work promises to be full of lyricism and warmth, with moments of wit and of tender care. Those who recall with pleasure the premiere of Gavin’s cantata Pour out your Light, O Stars in Bath Abbey in 2014 will not be disappointed: Gavin’s music and words will appeal to the whole family. The concert also features marvellous medleys and other carols from Gustav Holst and a host of others, and offers the opportunity to give your own voice a rousing outing in traditional audience carols. This concert is always extremely popular, so be sure to book ahead!

Spring Concert 2020: Handel – Alexander’s Feast

Saturday, March 21, 2020 at 7.30pm - St. Swithin's Church, Walcot Street, Bath

Our Spring Concert in St Swithin’s features the baroque magnificence of Handel’s delightful Alexander’s Feast. One of the most varied and sheerly beautiful of Handel’s oratorios, this work puts choir, soloists and orchestra through its paces as the whole gamut of emotions is depicted at the famous feast. We include Handel’s wonderful Harp Concerto no.6 and the Concerto Grosso Alexander’s Feast in the evening, and our young team of soloists will feature some of the brightest talent to emerge recently on the UK scene.

Summer Masterclass-Workshop 2020: Haydn – The Seasons

Saturday, July 18, 2020 at - Hartham Park

Saturday 18th – Sunday 19th July

Our summer term 2020 culminates in our unique Masterclass-Workshop weekend in the delightful setting of Hartham Park near Corsham – these weekends are open to guest singers of all abilities (contact jmwmusic@icloud.com). We shall spend the weekend exploring and perfecting Haydn’s splendid The Seasons with young soloists in masterclass with Gavin, and generally soaking up the Downton Abbey-vibe of the glorious Hartham Park as we sing one of Haydn’s greatest and least well-known choral works. Written after The Creation, this work has all the fabulous choral writing and wonderful solos we expect from Haydn at his peak, and it will be a sheer joy to explore A-grade Haydn that is relatively unknown.
