‘Uplifting’ (Sheffield Telegraph)
Sheffield Bach Society – also known as Sheffield Bach Choir, is avery friendly, mixed voice choir. We perform choral works not only by Bach, but also by a wide range of composers from before Bach’s time up to the present day, with professional soloists and orchestra. In addition to the published series of major concerts per season, other concerts with choir and organ are given by invitation. Enquiries to the Secretary are most welcome.

The choir’s history
Sheffield Bach Society was founded in 1950 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the death of J S Bach in Leipzig, and to bring the music of Bach to Sheffield audiences. It was led for many years by Dr Roger Bullivant, who conducted the choir for 38 years. Dr Bullivant was succeeded by Peter Collis in 2000, and in 2010 by Dr Simon Lindley.
