Bath Abbey Music Society

Bath Abbey Choirs performing at A Christmas Celebration Concert

Bath Abbey Music Society (BAMS) is a registered charity, formed out of a shared passion for church music. We provide financial and organisational support for the Abbey Choirs and musicians, enabling them to bring joy to audiences across Europe.

We help support and promote concerts given by the Abbey Choirs' and organ recitals on the Abbey’s magnificent Klais Organ. Another exciting venture for us is the recording of Bath Abbey Choir and Organ CDs. These award-winning recordings are funded by BAMS and have proved to be very popular, receiving excellent reviews and enabling the Abbey’s music to reach audiences worldwide.
