The mission of the music ministry at St. James' Church is to support and encourage vibrant congregational musical participation through enthusiastic example, and to enhance the quality of the liturgies at St. James' Church by aspiring to offer sacred music of the highest standard.
Worship at St. James' Church is enriched on Sunday mornings by the great hymns, psalms and other songs of the Anglican Choral Tradition, led by our choir.
Those interested in joining our choir are encouraged to speak with the Director of Music on Sundays following the 9:30am Sung Mass, especially those who can love to sing and can match pitch!
St. James' Church is an affiliate member of the Royal School of Church Music in America (RSCMA).
"Bless o Lord, us thy servants, who minister in thy temple. Grant that what we sing with our lips, we may believe in our hearts, and that what we believe in our hearts, we may show forth in our lives, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
~The Royal School of Church Music Chorister's Prayer
