Bath Abbey Music Society

A registered charity, Bath Abbey Music Society (or BAMS as we’re often referred to), was formed out of a shared love for church music.Our purpose is to provide support for the Abbey Choir and musicians.

We help support and promote the Abbey Choirs' annual Christmas concerts 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 hundreds more church music enthusiasts worldwide.
