St Francis' Choir

St Francis' Choir, Melbourne, Australia

Upholding a tradition of musical excellence for over 175 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 11.30am 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.
