Luke is represented by Suzy Evans at the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. He's preparing multiple books for publication - news about them will appear on this page later in 2019. A chapter of his appears in the Ashgate book Messiaen the Theologian (2010), and he contributed entries on Elgar and Stockhausen to the encyclopaedia Musicians and Composers of the Twentieth Century (2009).

 

As a speaker, Luke has presented at academic and education conferences in venues from Cardiff to California. He's also given pre-concert talks for Paul Jacobs, the head of the organ department at the Juilliard School, and written program notes for the Philharmonia Orchestra of Yale (including performances in Carnegie Hall), and the Cambridge University Musical Society.
