Bach the master

Dorset Bach Cantata Club














WELCOME IN OUR SIXTIETH YEAR

This year we celebrated our 60th Anniversary with a performance of Cantata 207A and the highly demanding motel Singet Dem Herrn.   

As Margaret Steinitz tells us on the next page, when DBCC started, we were something of a cult.  Bach’s beautiful but difficult-to-perform canon of church and secular cantatas were not widely known or appreciated. But with the rise in general education and the cross-fertilisation of ideas in the developed world, that is changing.   Our numbers, singers and orchestra, are steadily increasing.

One of the key figures in introducing Bach’s music to the British public was Paul Steinitz who performed 200 of them with the London Bach Society in London over a period of thirty years.

Paul’s wife was with us for this celebration and she has written a special piece for us - please follow this link.
