The St. Luke’s Choir is composed of four professional staff singers and seven (as of this writing) volunteers from the parish. The choir has built up a large repertory of music from plainsong through the 21st Century although, as we like to say, we are especially fond of Renaissance, Baroque, and anything from The Oxford Book of Carols. Whenever possible, our music is tied to the liturgical year and the Biblical lessons assigned to the day. It takes a lot of work to make a choir sound this good, and it all starts with the 9:00 warm-up on Sunday morning. Because of the daunting traffic surrounding Monrovia, the choir stopped holding Thursday night practices and now rehearses on Sunday after church.
The St. Luke’s Choir sings every Sunday morning from September through May, except for two Sundays off which are covered by soloists. During the summer, volunteers from the choir and other guest musicians often lead the services. The choir also sings the service on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday.
