Tickets are now on sale for St Albans Choral Society's June 2024 concert.  We are excited to present a programme of choral and organ music to celebrate St Alban’s Day, with the inaugural concert at St Peter’s Church, following its major refurbishment. 
 

Assistant conductor Naomi Jones will leads] the choir in a variety of works – Mendelssohn’s ever-popular extended anthem Hear my Prayer, Grieg’s achingly beautiful Ave Maris Stella and Rossini’s dramatic O Salutaris Hostia.
 
The choir will also premiere a specially commissioned setting of the Ave Verum Corpus from BBC prize-winning composer Sarah Frances Jenkins and will complete the programme with popular American/Scandinavian composer Morten Lauridsen’s rich and intensely moving Lux Aeterna – a non-liturgical Requiem.
 
St Albans Choral Society will be joined by outstanding young Cornish soprano Lucy Mitten and organist Richard Harvey, in his final concert as the long-standing accompanist of the choir. Richard is afforded the opportunity to shine in C├ęsar Franck’s Chorale in A minor, the Belgian composer’s final masterpiece.
