Sundays at the Cathedral
Worship with Music
The Cathedral maintains high standards for offering quality worship, and you’re warmly invited to try some of our different styles. Music for our Principal Eucharist each Sunday morning is led by the Cathedral Choir and Choristers. Prelude music begins prior to this 10:15 liturgy, which is celebrated in contemporary language, but in a “high church” fashion, with incense, bells, and festive processions. The service includes ample congregational singing of hymns and chants, plus some of the finest anthems and motets in the sacred choral repertoire, in addition to music by local composers.
Two other services on Sundays also include music. At 8:00 am, a traditional Eucharist features organ music with some congregational singing. At 6:00 pm, a more modern Eucharist blends classic hymnody with modern songs, piano, and guitar. Other musical services like Choral Evensong, or Lessons and Carols, are held occasionally at 6 p.m. and are announced in our Concert Calendar.
Those who play musical instruments – either as students, amateurs, or professionals – are invited occasionally to provide solos or to accompany the choirs or other musicians for services and concerts. Performance experience is necessary, and ensemble experience is desirable. For an audition, please contact Benjamin Lane.
Most of St. Luke’s choirs and musicians are available to perform at other locations within Central Florida and even beyond for weddings, conferences, benefits, civic events, or most any occasion or type of audience. Some of our choirs take annual tours to other regions and abroad. If you are interested in sponsoring a choral service, concert, or organ recital in another church or concert hall, please contact the Music Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Music Department is always looking for volunteers to help, host receptions, usher and assist at concerts and special services, prepare flyers and catalog and file music in the music library, as needed. If you are interested, please call the Music Office.
Contributions are always welcome for choir scholarships, choir camps and tours, our annual concert series and the music discretionary fund. All donations are tax-deductible.
