Anglican Church music is steeped in history. Its roots are based in the Catholic tradition but, with the English Reformation, a new and unique style of sacred music began to emerge with many famous English composers contributing to this genre of church music. In keeping with this traditional ethos, St. Andrew’s Adult Choir sings traditional sacred choral literature ranging from Gregorian chants, Anglican chants, music of the English and Lutheran Reformation, the Wesley family, and famous English composers.
In addition to singing anthems for Sunday services the Adult Choir leads the congregation each Sunday in the liturgy, sings Choral Evensong once a quarter on a Wednesday night in place of Evening Prayer, Thanksgiving Eve, Ash Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday services.
The Adult Choir rehearses on Sunday mornings from 8:50 to 10:00 A.M. prior to the Sunday Eucharist from August to May. Admission to the Adult Choir is at the discretion of the choirmaster.
