The new website

This replaces the website that we launched in September 2004. The old Bach Players website was designed and built by Ben Campbell, and, with various home-made extensions, it lived on for almost ten years.

The new website, designed and built by Lift, will work effectively on screens of any size. All the content from the old website is here, but is now easier to find: all the concerts, all the musicians who have played in The Bach Players, all the music played. In addition there are interviews, photos, and other documents. Our Twitter messages are here. These have tended to replace the news items (now gathered in the Journal). But now with a simple way of adding content, we expect the Journal entries to multiply.

For their contributions to the new website: thanks to Matt Carey and his colleagues at Lift, to Fred Smeijers and Corina Cotorobai of OurType for donating the Arnhem webfonts that you can see in use here.

Keeping in touch

Friends of the Bach Players

In 2008 we started a subscription scheme as a way of supporting the production of our CDs. Last year we renamed and formalized this as Friends of The Bach Players, reflecting the larger purpose of the scheme. By becoming a Friend, you support both the concerts and the recordings – costly operations that always need subsidy from somewhere, and for which it is increasingly difficult to find help from the Arts Council. You will also become part of a community of people who enjoy and support what we do.

From the Journal

At St Jean de Braye

October 2014 – News

Last Sunday we played a concert at the parish church of St Jean de Bray, just outside Orléans, on the river Loire. This was the birthplace of Norbert Dufourcq (1904–90), organist and musicologist, and also the grandfather of The Bach Players’ Nicolette and Marion Moonen.
