Music

The Parish Choir leads the congregational singing at the 10.00 a.m. Sunday services and other sung worship. Rehearsals are held at 7.15 p.m. on Thursday evenings from September to June. The choir enhances worship with the singing of anthems and motets.

Music chosen reflects the Scripture readings dictated by the Revised Common Lectionary and includes hymns from the 1938 edition of the "The Book of Common Praise", as well as contemporary selections from "One Hundred Hymns for Today" and "Living Praise". Morning and Evening canticles are sung to settings of settings of Anglican Chant. Psalms are also frequently sung during worship.

There are two fine organs - a two-manual Casavant located in the main church and a Karl Wilhelm portatif in the Chapel. The participation of other instrumentalists also takes place, particularly on Festivals and other special occasions.
