Music at St. Thomas’

Music has always been an integral part of worship at St. Thomas’.  In 2007 we added music to the Sunday 8:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist Rite I.  The folks who worship at 8:00 a.m. tell us this enriches their worship experience.  They sing the hymns with gusto!  Especially impressive since the Choir does not sing at the early service!

The St. Thomas’ Choir helps to lead the singing at the 10:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist Rite II/Enriching Our Worship. The Choir is a very dedicated group of anywhere from 8-16 singers who sing all year!  From September through May we rehearse on Thursday evenings from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. Year-round we rehearse Sunday mornings from 9:00 – 9:30 a.m.  We sing a broad spectrum of music from plainchant to early American folk tunes, to American spirituals, to four-part anthems from the 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th and now the 21st centuries, to newly-composed texts and tunes, both in unison and in harmony.  We even have a few anthems composed for and dedicated to our Choir!  We change the service music; e.g., The Gloria, Sanctus and Benedictus, Fraction Anthem, Agnus Dei, according to the liturgical year, thus underscoring where we are on our path together as a worshiping community.  In addition, we welcome choir members from afar who sing with us during the Summer, or when they are here in town.
