Welcome to St Albans Bach Choir
Welcome to St Albans Bach Choir, one of the finest large choirs in Hertfordshire. Since our inaugural concert in 1924 we have performed a wide variety of major choral works, including: the Baroque masterpieces of Bach and Handel; the gems of the classical era by Mozart and Haydn; the giants of the Romantic choral repertoire by composers like Brahms, Dvořák, Fauré, Mendelssohn and Verdi; and the great works of the twentieth century such as Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast and Britten’s War Requiem.
We perform principally in the beautiful Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban, engaging professional soloists and orchestras of the highest calibre to work under the baton of our Music Director, the Cathedral's Master of the Music, Andrew Lucas. We give three major concerts each season, in November, at Easter and in July, with two additional concerts every Christmas in aid of charity. Tickets may be purchased from the Cathedral Box Office. For priority booking, please join the Friends of St Albans Bach Choir. For advance notice, please join our mailing list.
If you are a business operating locally, looking for a special way to entertain your clients or staff and obtain publicity for your business, why not consider our reasonably-priced sponsorship opportunities? If you are a business or individual planning a special event, why not consider hiring the St Albans Celebration Choir to make your special day even more special?
If you would like to sing great choral music in a friendly choir, can read music and sing in tune, we would love to hear from you. Please see our photos, video, or our Facebook page. We look forward to hearing from you.
