Welcome

On behalf of St. Albans Cathedral Ex-Choristers Association may I welcome you to our website. Our current Association was established in 2007 but existed formerly in the 1980s.

Having recently hosted a very successful Festival for the International Federation of Cathedral Old Choristers’ Associations, the ECA Committee will be focusing on next year’s Reunion and AGM which may well be at a different time to the usual summer months of June and July. We will also be looking at the viability of holding another Ex-Choristers’ Camp at Luccombe.

Thank you, and enjoy your visit.

Malcolm G. Bury

One of the main components of worship in any Cathedral is the offering of music, and the Cathedral and Abbey Church of Saint Alban is no exception. We have had a rich tradition of choral music since the foundation of the Diocese of St. Albans in 1877, and also as an Abbey Church for many centuries before. During this time singers and musicians have been giving their best to the glory of God.

The Association aims to support the Cathedral Choir and Abbey Girls Choir, and I welcome this aim both as Patron of the Association and as Dean of St. Albans. I am grateful and confident that all our members will continue to give freely of their time and talents so that the Association may be sustained into the future.

The Very Reverend Dr Jeffrey John
Dean of St. Albans
Patron of the Association
