On Sunday it was announced to the Cathedral community that next year, in August 2024, Andrew Lucas will retire from his position as The Master of the Music. The Dean explained that the process for the appointment of Andrew’s successor is a significant one and that the Chapter is grateful to him for enabling that to begin soon. 

Dean Jo said ‘We celebrate 25 years of excellence in music here at St Albans Cathedral under Andrew’s leadership. This place has been truly blessed. There will be plenty of opportunities next summer to offer our thanks and farewell. Until then we look forward to a wonderful last year of Andrew’s leadership among us.’
