Conductor Paul Spicer brings
to the choir his great expertise and international reputation as conductor,
teacher, composer and writer.
|We are sad to announce the sudden death of Stanley Sellers, Richard Butt's partner, on Friday 5 April. Stanley was a Life Member of the Choir and always gave us his very generous support. He will be sadly missed.|
New Commission for World War One Commemoration
2014 marks the centenary of the outbreak of the 1914-18 War. To commemorate this event the Birmingham Bach Choir has commissioned the poet Euan Tait and its own conductor/composer, Paul Spicer, to write a major choral and orchestral work for performance in July 2014. The work is called Unfinished Remembering and is planned as a choral symphony (with soprano and baritone soloists) in four movements. In commemorating the Great War, the work also commemorates all wars and, perhaps especially those with which we have been recently involved in Iraq and Afghanistan: more details here.
This was a performance
that glowed from within ...
