St Albans Bach Choir gave its first concert in 1924, a performance of Bach’s St Matthew Passion. The Choir presents a wide variety of music, staging three major concerts and two charity carol concerts each year in St Albans Cathedral. Andrew Lucas, the Cathedral’s Master of the Music, has been the Choir’s Music Director since 1998.

Recent performances have included JS Bach – St John Passion and Christmas Oratorio, and in July this year the rarely performed St Paul Oratorio by Felix Mendelssohn. In 2013, 2015 and again in 2019, the Choir performed with John Rutter and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for their popular carol concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. On the 6 July this year, the Choir, in conjunction with the Parliament Choir, formed the chorus for a concert in St Albans Cathedral in the presence of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
