We are the East Sussex Bach Choir. Our aim is to perform a varied repertoire of baroque and renaissance works to a very high standard. We engage professional soloists and high-quality period players to bring experience and excellence to our performances. We follow the practice of ‘historically informed performance’, getting as close as possible to the composer’s original intention. While the choir’s repertoire certainly includes the works of JS Bach and other baroque composers, it is by no means limited to these. 



2023-2024 Season

Our moving performance of JS Bach's St John Passion on Saturday 9th March at Lewes Town Hall was a huge success, with a rapturous reception from a capacity audience. We were particularly thrilled to have our President, Sir John Tomlinson, joining us to sing the part of Christus with the superb Nick Pritchard as Evangelist.  Our other amazing soloists were Sam Cobb (soprano) Rebecca Leggett (alto) and Andrew Davies (bass). 

We are about to announce our concerts for the next season, so keep in touch with our future plans by looking for details soon on this website.  Why not join our mailing list by contacting us on
