Llandaff Cathedral Choral Society was founded in 1937, as a special choir to supplement the Llandaff Cathedral choir in the performance of large-scale works on special occasions. It now has individual status, and is one of the longest established choirs in Wales. The founder, and first conductor, of the Society was Dr W H Gabb. The longest-serving conductors following Dr Gabb were Robert Joyce (1958-1974), and Dr Michael Smith (1974-1991). The Choir have given outstanding performances in Llandaff Cathedral, including charity concerts to raise funds for various charitable purposes. The choir members came from various parts of Cardiff, such as Ely, Riverside, and the Old Rectory care home in Wenvoe. There were 166 members recorded in the Society membership during the 1977-78 period.
