Music is important to us and we are blessed with quite a number of excellent musicians within our congregation. The Music Coordinator is one of four organists who serve in rotation on a regular basis. In addition, we have a wonderful ad hoc group of singers who offer anthems etc from time to time. We also welcome other instrumentalists to play, enhancing the music.
Most in our congregation would likely agree with St. Augustine of Hippo who reportedly said, Qui bene cantat bis orat or “He who sings well prays twice”. We sing the psalms set to plainsong chant or a well-known hymn tune, and enjoy several mass settings throughout the year. We use a fairly wide range of hymns ranging from the traditional, to more contemporary expressions and those from the world church.
