“…and sing Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” So Saint Paul has written in his Epistle to the Colossian Church. And we do likewise at each Liturgy here at Saint James’. Congregational singing of the Hymns, Psalms and Canticles is an essential part of Anglican worship, and the people of this parish do it well. Along with the music of the people, however, we can also offer other music of great intellectual, spiritual and artistic worth. This is where our Choirs and our Bell Ensemble are involved:
THE PARISH CHOIR: This important choral group assists on a nearly weekly basis in the proclamation of the Gospel in song, helping to lead the congregation, and singing the Psalm of the day. The choir this past season consisted largely of singers new to the group, and truly excellent progress has been made in the areas of blend, diction, and overall confidence. We look forward to welcoming them back this Fall, and we also invite you to join us for great music, fellowship, and fun.THE CHILDREN'S CHOIR (GIRL'S CHOIR): This is our newest, choral group directed by Ruth Hale.
