SJC Live

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.

The Choir processing in to St John’s College Chapel

The Ash Wednesday service in the Chapel of St John's was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 on 6 March 2019.

The service marks the start of Lent, and featured Byrd's 'Ne irascaris, Domine' as the anthem, with Weelke's Short Service. The Choir also performed Allegri's 'Miserere', without which no service on Ash Wednesday could be complete.

The broadcast is available to listen to online until early April.
