The Choir of St Luke’s, Chelsea, one of the finest voluntary church choirs in London, presents a late Friday afternoon hour of a cappella choral music by British, Flemish and German composers, from the 11th century to the present day.

The young adult choir sings every Sunday for services at the striking neo-Gothic St Luke’s church in the heart of Chelsea, London, continuing a choral tradition of nearly 200 years. They will be performing an eclectic selection of their choral repertoire including Charles Stanford’s sumptuous “Three motets”, works by English and Flemish Renaissance composers William Byrd, Orlando Gibbons, Clemens non Papa and Guillaume Dufay, and arrangements of Scottish folksongs.

The choir is directed by renowned broadcaster and conductor Jeremy Summerly, and in addition to their Sunday duties performs regularly in cathedrals across the UK and Europe, recently including Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, London, Chartres Cathedral and the Berliner Dom. In addition to this first tour of Belgium, they will be touring New York this summer and singing services at Canterbury Cathedral.
