The music program at St. Michael & All Angels’ consists of traditional pipe organ, an adult choir and a junior choir. Congregational singing is important in our worship; the congregation sings a variety of mass ordinary settings and hymns. Hymns are chosen to support the lectionary and church seasons and are selected from the 1982 Hymnal and supplemented by selections from the 1940 and English Hymnals.

Adult Choir

choirThe adult choir is a non-auditioned group that leads the mass ordinary and hymns, and sings chant propers and an anthem each Sunday and major holy days. Musical selections range from Renaissance to contemporary works. Some of our favorites:

  • If ye love me – Thomas Tallis
  • Ave verum corpus – Mozart
  • God so loved the world – John Stainer
  • Never weather-beaten sail – Charles Wood
  • Like as the hart – Herbert Howells

The adult choir meets on Wednesday evenings and before the late service on Sundays. If you are being called to participate in the choir at St. Michael and All Angels’, please contact Matthew Norwood.

Junior Choir

The junior choir sings anthems for special occasions and learns musicality and music theory. If your school-aged child is interested in joining the junior choir, please contact Nancy King.
