Welcome to the web-site of Bath’s The Chandos Singers.
The Chandos Singers of Bath are a chorus of about 20 singers, currently concentrating on works, both sacred and secular, which by the time of the performance have not become over-performed by other choral groups. Where possible, the composer’s first version is used.
Autumn 2017 Concert
The Autumn 2017 Concert will include the Christmas Oratorio by Saint-Saëns, the Three Biblical Scenes by Heinrich Schutz (1585-1672, aka Sagittarius) and works by the composers with whom he interacted (Giovanni Gabrieli, Scheidt, and Monteverdi).
This concert is on Saturday 9th December 2017 at 6.30, at the Magdalen Chapel, Holloway, Bath. The 6.30 start is to counteract the winter and does not signify an extra-long concert.
Tickets (£12.00, full-time students £5.00) may be purchased from members of Chandos, on the door or from Bath Box Office (please see Tickets for more information).
