Nothing beats the exciting sound of live choral music.

Our popular concerts feature high quality singing of classical and contemporary choral music in some of the best venues. The Chorus sounds truly wonderful when you hear them perform music live – the way the composer wanted it to be heard.

Come to our next concert and see how that feels.

In the historic setting of St Albans Cathedral we are pleased to present two compelling choral works urging us to look towards a better and more peaceful future.

The Armed Man

Subtitled a ‘Mass for Peace’, this well-known modern choral classic was composed by Karl Jenkins for the Royal Armouries Museum’s Millennium celebrations and was dedicated to victims of the Kosovo crisis. Loved by both audiences and choirs, this powerful work has a deep emotional impact. Charting the growing menace of a descent into war, and interspersed with moments of reflection, it shows the horrors that war brings and ends with the hope for peace in a new millennium.

Sarojini

Composed to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Indian Independence, this stunning world premiere uses texts from Sarojini Naidu’s poetry to celebrate her legacy; her political contributions, artistic prowess, advocacy of women’s rights and her impact on India’s fight to be free from British rule along with her hope for a better future.

Composer Shruthi Rajasekar was named a “Rising Star” by the BBC Music Magazine in 2020 and chosen by The Guardian as a composer “who will enrich your life”. She specialises in music that draws from her unique background in the Carnatic (South Indian classical) and Western classical styles. Performed across North America, Europe, and Asia, Shruthi’s music has reached hundreds of thousands of listeners. 

We are delighted to be able to perform Shruthi’s exciting new work with two of the greatest living exponents of Carnatic music, Nirmala Rajasekar on veena and Tanjore Murugaboopathi on mridanga.
