Welcome to SJC Live, our web archive. These tracks are all taken from live services, complete with their imperfections! I hope that this resource may encourage conductors in schools and churches to explore some new repertoire with their choirs. Many choirmasters get sent large quantities of sheet music from publishers, but sometimes it can be helpful to hear actual performances.
I hope this small selection can offer some joy and comfort to the listener.

Following on from the Choir’s success in promoting new and exciting repertoire, its most recent festive recording features works from composers including Michael Finnissy, who’s piece John the Baptist was commissioned for the Choirs’ well-known Advent broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Bob Chilcott’s The Shepherd’s Carol was commissioned by Stephen Cleobury, who along with John Scott – composer of Creator of the Stars of Night – were once Organ Scholars at St John’s.
