The Chancel Choir will sing at the 8:00 a.m. liturgy on Sunday, October 13.  This is the first time that we are trying this.  It is indeed something new.  It is in an attempt to enrich and enliven the early service time with some additional musical offerings.  It was evident that over the summer months when we welcomed several guest musicians that it added an additional dimension to worship.  It is our hope that we can periodically do this throughout the choir season.

The Chancel choir  is comprised of members of the congregation.  Anyone is invited to sing in the choir.  Most of the choir members do read music but that is not mandatory.  A love of singing and making music for the Lord is the heart and soul of the choir.  The Choir also helps with chanting and singing Psalms as well as providing leadership for singing the liturgical music settings sung throughout the service.  Members of the choir also are called to sing solos and duets, etc. in worship and offer their talents by playing instrumental solos and sometimes provide instrumental support for worship.

 

CANTORS WANTED – St. Paul’s is always looking for cantors to sing at the 10:30 a.m. liturgy.  Cantors will be responsible for singing parts of the Liturgy to include the Kyrie and Gloria as well as leading Psalm singing.  Please contact Victor Fields at vfields.stpaulsyork@comcast.net if you have any questions.
