History & Mission:

The Stockholm Bach Society was founded by Katarina Bengtson in 2009, inspired by the Bach-cantata series at the Royal Academy of Music in London, in which she had participated during 2009. The aim of the Society is to play one concert a month, 2-3 cantatas each time, and as close to the intended Sunday as possible. They play on historical instruments, and try and stay as true to the original versions/interpretations as possible, at least as far as they can know. They ususally play with single strings, and with a choir only consisting of the SATB soli, but sometimes have the local choir singing as well, and have also had a doubling quartet for the choirs.
