Visiting Choirs at St Albans Cathedral

When the Cathedral Choir and Abbey Girls Choir are on leave, the Cathedral welcomes visiting choirs from around the country and abroad to help maintain a regular pattern of choral services.

Term time

  • Monday Evensongs at 5pm are available to visiting choirs.

Cathedral Choir holiday periods

  • Full weekends, summer residencies and bank holidays are available.
  • For weekends we ask that visiting choirs sing on both days (Saturday and Sunday). Please note that we do not have single Saturday Evensongs available.
  • The diary is planned at least a year in advance, but it is always worth contacting us to discuss short term availability.  

Further information can be found by downloading our notes for visiting choirs (pdf)
