Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul
The Cathedral Choir is a well-balanced, multigenerational ensemble that enjoys singing music from early plainsong to twenty-first century literature, with an emphasis on the Anglican choral tradition. The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings (6:00pm-7:30) and sings primarily at the 9:15am Choral Communion service on Sunday mornings, as well as occasional Evensong, Lessons & Carols, and Diocesan services.
The Compline Choir gathers skilled singers from the Cathedral and the wider Charleston musical community to sing the ancient office of Compline one Sunday a month at 8pm. This contemplative, candlelit service lasts about twenty minutes, and is set entirely to plainsong and early polyphony. It is frequently followed by (Pub)lic Theology, a lecture and discussion event on the intersection of culture, knowledge, and faith, in a comfortable public environment.
Our contemporary band mixes elements of folk, americana, and bluegrass with texts both ancient and modern. Our worship leaders are a part of a liturgical musical collective called Holy City Hymns that seek to create music for the local church. Songs from Holy City Hymns are regularly used in our Sunday worship gatherings.
