Welcome to SJC Live, our web archive. These tracks are all taken from live services, complete with their imperfections!

We 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.
