Following a thrilling series of centenary celebration events during 2019, Birmingham Bach Choir opens their 2020 season on top form with a wonderful programme of 20th century English choral music for Eastertide, including Britten’s deeply spiritual festival cantata, ‘Rejoice in the Lamb’, and Leighton’s great Mass for Double Choir. Both works feature choir and four soloists. In addition, a short piece by David Bednall will be premiered - based on the words of a 17th century poem, 'The Dear Bargain’, by Richard Crashaw.
