The Choir of the St Andrew and St Paul Church presents Lux (Latin for light), a collection of sacred songs associated with the Nativity. Selections include some well-known carols such as O Come, All Ye Faithful and Once in Royal David’s City in arrangements by Sir David Willcocks, as well as pieces by such British composers as Herbert Howells (A Spotless Rose) and Will Todd (My Lord Has Come), and by American composers Morten Lauridsen (O Magnum Mysterium) and Eric Withacre (Lux aurumque), among others.

The Choir of the Church of St Andrew and St Paul is a 45-voice ensemble that includes professional singers and auditioned members from the church and Montreal communities. In addition to providing music for the church’s regular worship services, it also presents concerts and choral services throughout the year, including the annual CBC Christmas Sing-In, a benefit concert for Maison du Parc in collaboration with the Montreal Symphony Players’ Association.

Jonathan Oldengarm has been Organist and Director of Music at the Church of St Andrew and St Paul since 2008. He holds degrees in organ and harpsichord from Wilfrid Laurier and McGill Universities, and also studied at the Hochschule für Musik in Stuttgart, Germany. Winner of several national and international competitions, he appears regularly as a soloist, accompanist and chamber musician throughout North America and Europe.
