a tradition of musical excellence for over 150 years
St Francis' Choir sings
at the historic St Francis' Church in Melbourne,
Australia, on the corner of Lonsdale and Elizabeth
Streets. The choir sings at the 11 a.m. Sunday Eucharist.
The choir sings a range of Masses and motets, sometimes
accompanied by the Symphonia of Melbourne or Canzona
Brass, and with eminent soloists. While the great Masses
of such composers as Haydn, Schubert, Gounod and Mozart
are in the Choir’s repertoire, the choir also sings the
works of modern composers, including Australian composers.
We hope that St Francis’
is a place where people from all walks of life will feel
welcome and draw from the liturgy and its music a sense of
the closeness and otherness of God. The great heritage of
church music, has something wonderful to say to the human
spirit, something words alone cannot say.
