Smith’s life-long interest in the music of the church is reflected in the ambitious music program that he directs at Lucerne’s historic St. Matthew’s Church, where he employs some of central Switzerland’s best singers and instrumentalists to perform a rich and varied repertoire of sacred music from all periods, particularly renaissance and baroque music and 20th century music from England and the United States. Since 2010 he has instituted and led choral residencys in english cathedrals for conductors, organists, and professional and selected amateur singers. —
