˝The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.˝
– J.S. Bach (1685-1750)
The choral program at Christ Church is a celebrated expression of prayer and thanksgiving within our parish. Led by Mr. Sheldon Eldridge, trained in the tradition of Anglican choral music, he leads the musical selections of sacred liturgy. He also directs the adult choir and choristers to give their all in music ministry for our worship services. The adult choir provides magnificent music for the 10 a.m. Eucharist and during special church events throughout the year. Students in grade four and above may become a chorister in the youth choir, which sings for special festivals and feasts during the year. Choristers also study elements of music theory, singing posture, tone production, and proper participation in liturgical worship.
˝He who sings prays twice˝
– Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD)
Special Events: A Ceremony of Lessons and Carols; Evensong
