The Choir of Christ Church St Laurence
Directed by Neil McEwan, the CCSL robed Choir, based at Christ Church St Laurence in central Sydney NSW, is renowned for its choral excellence and the liturgical splendour of its festal music. The auditioned choir specialises in SATB polyphony and Gregorian chant. It performs at concerts as well as Church liturgies, and records at several acoustically outstanding Sydney venues, including St Patricks Cathedral Parramatta. To ecumenically support the development of Church music in Australia, several CCSL members also provide cantor services and sing with other Church choirs around Sydney. The choir is affiliated with the RSCM (Royal School of Church Music). Peter Jewkes is the Organist of Christ Church St Laurence, which also has two Organ Scholars, and an organ recital series is maintained by the Church. Daniel Dries, the Rector of CCSL, is also an accomplished Church musician.
