Music at Christ Church

The Psalmist tells us to “sing to the Lord a new song,” and instructs us to come into His presence with singing. At Christ Episcopal Church, we try to meet these commands by fostering a vibrant, moving and spiritual music program.
It's difficult to describe a typical Sunday's musical offerings, due to their ever-changing nature, but the music used most Sundays is traditional choral music drawn from a varied and eclectic set of sources. The music is always carefully chosen to reflect and comment upon that week's Scriptural readings as well as its place in the church calendar.
But no matter what genre, service or faith tradition our music emerges from, there is one constant: All the music in our church is intended to allow every person in the church to worship and acknowledge the glory of God. Members of our choir have said that singing this music has allowed them to more fully experience the presence of God in their lives, and the same is true for those of us who join in from the pews. Each Sunday we do, in fact, sing God's praises as best we can.
