'The musical tradition of the universal Church is a treasure of inestimable value, greater even than that of any other art. The main reason for this pre-eminence is that, as sacred song united to the words, it forms a necessary or integral part of the solemn liturgy.  Holy Scripture, indeed, has bestowed praise upon sacred song, and the same may be said of the fathers of the Church and of the Roman pontiffs who in recent times, led by St. Pius X, have explained more precisely the ministerial function supplied by sacred music in the service of the Lord.'  (#112) Sacrosanctum Concilium


Listen to music live from the Easter Vigil 2022:

Hallelujah - Georg Handel
Sanctus - Franz Schubert


Since its foundation in 1852, St Luke’s has occupied a unique and enviable position as a leading exponent in Sacred Music. Today, St Luke’s is acclaimed as one of the finest choirs in the Channel Islands. The Church prides itself in continuing the ancient tradition of sacred music that is part of our nation’s cultural heritage.


The choir is called at to sing at numerous during the Church year. Its principal function is to sing at the Sunday Sung Mass, and other sacred liturgies during term time. The music is drawn from many centuries and traditions, and in recent years new compositions have been commissioned from prominent contemporary composers, such as  Philip Stopford and Colin Mawby.  When the busy liturgical schedule permits, the choir often sing further afield at Cathedrals and Churches around the UK and beyond.

The latest music list can be downloaded here.

The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings. If you are interested in joining, and wish to arrange an informal audition, or more information, contact the Director of Music, Michael Wynne.
