WELCOME TO OUR BACH CANTATA GROUP   

We have now passed our 60th anniversary and are going on as timelessly as Bach himself.  From our beginnings as an adjunct to the London Bach Society we have remained a haven for the study of Bach's most significant choral music.

In those early days Paul Steinitz, one of the key figures in introducing Bach’s music to the British public, set himself the task, with the LBS, of performing all Bach's 200 church cantatas. This took thirty years! So much of the music was new to him (performance-wise at least) and to everyone, that he took the opportunity to try the cantatas out in Dorset with a dedicated scratch choir.  

Our work places us within a network of music practitioners and music lovers throughout the south of England and beyond.  Please have a look at our programme and the other pages.  On the next page our story is continued in Margaret Steinitz's own words.
