Bath Camerata’s new CD

Not all of Bath’s ‘fame’ lies with Roman ruins or Georgian architecture, in the world of music it happens to be home to Bath Camerata – an award-winning chamber choir which  – although based in the city – has appeared everywhere from London’s Wigmore Hall to the Orlando Cathedral in Florida.

The choir has won several prizes, including BBC Adult Choir of the Year, and made a number of tv appearances. Contemporary music is central  to its choral standing and it has commissioned and premiered numerous works.
