Music is an integral part of our common life. It is among the most joyful offerings we give to God—every Sunday, at parish events, and in special worship services. We believe, as St. Augustine held, that to sing is to pray twice. Praise God for the gift of music which can exceed our capabilities of expression through spoken word and can allow us to access the depths of our emotional experience, drawing us closer to God.
There is a way for everyone to to be involved in music at St. Alban’s — whether as a dedicated choir member, an occasional instrumentalist, or an enthusiastic congregational singer. Even the engaged listener has an important role.
“…be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms,hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” Ephesians:18-20
A Music Advisory Group, formed during the current interim period and tasked with seeking a comprehensive understanding of the music at St. Alban's, presented their final report to the Vestry on February 15. The report may be viewed here.
