Music

“I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live.  I will sing praise

to my God while I have my being.”

(Psalms 104:33, KJV)

 

The Music Department at All Souls’ offers a varied choir program for all ages.  Each chorister develops and refines musical skills that include the fundamentals of reading music, rhythm, diction, and pitch.  In addition to musical training, choristers gain an understanding of and appreciation for the church year and its seasons and feasts.  All choristers are taught the service music, prayers, and creeds of the Church Family.  Choristers socialize on an informal basis and share in others’ concerns and joys. Regardless of age, membership in the All Souls’ choir promotes a deeper understanding of the Church and her ways and fosters a life-long appreciation for church music.
