The Covid-19 pandemic played havoc with our 2020 programme, and in the end only one of our 6 planned concerts took place – Quartet19 before the first lockdown. And while we have a few tentative bookings for 2021, it is currently impossible to plan any live concerts.
However plans are in place for two recordings in Malmesbury Abbey of artists due to have performed in 2020. Firstly Abbey organist John Hughes will go some way towards recreating the piano and organ recital he was due to give. And Bath Bach Choir, who have always enjoyed their visits to the Abbey, are building a programme to showcase Malmesbury and the Abbey.
The intention is to put these recordings on Youtube and publicise them so that as many people as possible can appreciate them. But what we are really looking forward to is the chance to experience good music live again in the Abbey.
