The Bach Players

History & Mission:

Founded in 1996, The Bach Players established a series of programmes of Bach cantatas at St Johnís Wood Parish Church in London. There The Bach Players began to introduce some of these lesser-known works to a wider audience. The Bach Players have recently started to make programmes in which J.S. Bach is linked to other composers.

In 2007 The Bach Players launched a new series from St Johnís Downshire Hill, in Hampstead. This is a recently restored church of 1818-1823; The Bach Players feel that it is an ideal venue for both Bach cantatas and chamber music. From September 2009 The Bach Players are twinning each of these concerts with one, usually the day before, at The King of Hearts in Norwich.
