Andrew Lucas has been Master of the Music of St Albans Cathedral and music director of St Albans Bach Choir since 1998 and was artistic director of the St Albans International Organ Festival from 1999 to 2007, directing four festivals. At the cathedral he is head of the music programme which includes four choirs and a parish orchestra. In this time he has conducted much of the larger-scale repertoire for choir and orchestra from all periods, but his principal musical activity is in preparing and directing the music for daily choral worship in the cathedral. He was born in Wellington, Shropshire, in 1958. From 1976 he studied organ at the Royal College of Music in London where his teachers included John Birch and Herbert Howells. After graduating from London University (BMus) he continued study with Peter Hurford, and with Piet Kee in Amsterdam. He worked for seventeen years at St Paul’s Cathedral in London, the last eight years as assistant director of Music, until moving to St Albans. At St Paul’s Cathedral his accompaniments of the St Paul’s choir in concerts and on more than twenty commercial recordings for the Hyperion label received critical acclaim. He also made two solo recordings there including Organ Showpieces from St Paul’s (Naxos 8.550955). As a solo organist he has played concerts throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, Bermuda and the United States. In 1997 he spent three months as Acting Organist and Master of the Choristers at St Andrew’s Cathedral in Sydney, Australia.
