"The French are a nation of romantics at heart," says Paul Spicer, the choir's Music Director and Conductor (pictured above). "Their language is a sensual one and their music is often a reflection of this.
"Our Summer programme is a celebration of all things French, from the mid-1500s to modern times, from the much-loved to lesser known, with Dominique Phinot being the great discovery. His passionate outpourings and soul-searching affect all who hear and perform his works."
Birmingham Bach Choir has been contributing to the musical life of the West Midlands since 1919, making it one of the longest established musical groups in the area. Although the main focus is the Baroque period (especially JS Bach), the choir performs a range of music, including 20th and 21st-century works.
