A sacred tradition

We draw on the large treasury of Western sacred music in the Anglican tradition and explore the ever-widening musical language of the whole church. Our hymns, organ music, and choral music enhance the liturgy through the offerings of many people.


The Chapel Organ is a wonderful four-manual instrument in the symphonic/orchestral tradition of organ-building. It plays the entire range of repertoire well, and is particularly suited to the service music and improvisational needs of the Anglican liturgy. The organ incorporates pipework from various builders, including the original 1917 chapel organ.  The result is a singing, colorful sound that can range in volume from a whisper to a roar.

The Chapel Choir is the most visible and regular way to participate in our musical programs. Membership is open to anyone; parish membership is not a requirement. Prospective members should have some prior singing experience, and the ability to read music is always helpful. Contact the choirmaster for more information.

The choir sings each Sunday at the 10:00am service and rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:45 p.m. and on Sunday mornings from 8:450 to 9:45 a.m.

The staff quartet of professional singers also sings at the various State Services and other special occasions.
