My apricot tree is secreting what seems to me as copious amounts of sap. Is this a normal amount of sap after pruning about a year ago, or is my tree sick?

it really looks like that tree is sufferring from too much water. I'm not sure where you are from but did you get a lot of rainfall this year? If so this can definately be the cause of all this sap, that much is definately not normal. Ensure that you are not providing additional water and that there is adequate drainage for this tree other wise you will notice the branches begin to die out.
It also depends on where the sap is coming from, I cant really tell from the picture, it looks like you cut out a huge branch? Do you have holes in the actual tree from say woodpeckers? More details would help.
