The music at St. Mary's represents the pieties which comprise our congregation. We love our rich Anglican hymnody tradition even as we blend it with more contemporary music derived from the strains of the renewal movements and Cursillo within the Episcopal Church.
We think that persons of all musical preferences will find something in our liturgical music to assist them in their worship of God, and so affirm the quote from St. Augustine, "the one who sings, prays twice."
The goal of our liturgical music is to help us "pray twice."
Our key boardist and Choral Director, Josh Charney is completing a Ph. D in musicology.
Our blended music add the keyboard and accordian skills of Peter Casalegno and the guitars of Rob Lewallan and Karen Cooke. Various lay members serve in the role as presentors for lay congregational singing.
We are blessed to have a Handbell Choir lead by Pamela Wade, a Kodály certified teacher.
The choral season begins in the fall and goes through Day of Pentecost.
We invite all who want to lend their musical gifts to the glory of God in our liturgy to join us. With music you bless us "twice."
Handbells: The Bells of St. Mary
The Handbell Choir offers anthems regularly for our liturgies, especially the high feast day. They practice each Sunday after the 9:30 a.m. liturgy. The practices are temporarily suspended because of the current coronavirus crisis.
