The Choir

St. Luke’s choir is composed of diligent, talented volunteers from the parish who gather together to express their faith and talent through singing. Choristers range in age from the young to the more mature.

 

The choir sings at the main service at 10:30 am each Sunday from September through to the end of May as well as special services during Advent and Lent. In addition, the choir sings at Evensong three or four times a year.

 

Of special note is  the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols held late in Advent, just before Christmas, as well as the services during the Triduum during Holy Week.

St. Luke’s Choir in the Quire.

St. Luke’s Choir is associated with the Royal School of Church Music. The RSCM is an organization based in the United Kingdom with affiliated choirs, schools, and individuals around the world. The RSCM’s motto: ‘I will sing with the spirit and with the understanding also’ is appropriate as they are committed to achieving the best use of good music in worship. Through educations, training, publications, advice, and encouragement, they aim to support church music today and to invest in church music for the future.

 

If you are interested in joining the choir, contact the Organist and Choirmaster. Rehearsals are on Thursdays at 7:30 pm in the boardroom and on Sundays at 9:45 am in the Quire. While there is a significant commitment of time and effort, the result of the experience is meaningful and rewarding.
