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 Albanengaging 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

Our Next Concert



It is so rare to hear a live performance of Richard Strauss’s wonderfully moving Four Last Songs that such an event would make a visit to a concert where they were included well worthwhile.

But when the programme also included Brahms’ German Requiem it becomes almost irresistible.
