Director: Tom Winpenny

Formed in 1996, St Albans Abbey Girls Choir sings Evensong twice a week and consists of 26 girls aged 8–14 drawn from many local schools. Primarily an upper-voice choir, for certain weekend services each term and other special events, the girls sing with the lay clerks of the cathedral choir. In addition to its rôle at the centre of the cathedral’s daily round of worship, the choir plays a major part in the biennial St Albans International Organ Festival, and has broadcast on BBC Radio, with CD recordings that include an album of baroque motets featuring the soprano Emma Kirkby. The choir has made concert tours to the United States, Denmark and Germany, and has given performances of Handel’s Messiah, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, and Britten’s St Nicolas. Their acclaimed recording of Rutter’s Gloria (Naxos 8.572653), was made jointly with St Albans Cathedral Choir.
