It's not unusual to hear a rousing round of applause following the postlude on any given Sunday at Emmanuel. Excellence in music and the arts has been a part of our history, because in the Episcopal tradition we believe that beauty and creativity reveal something about the nature of God. Our organist Michael Fisher and choirmaster Geoffrey Williams guide us in continuing the tradition of ushering people into God's presence through the arts. Singing at the 10:15 Mass during the program year, the Emmanuel Choir performs works from all eras, offering an anthem and guiding us in Anglican chant and plainsong, as well as hymns from the 1982 hymnal. We also feature professional instrumentalists on occasion, as well as including parishioners with musical backgrounds; some works recently performed include the Schubert Mass in G, the Gabriel Faure Cantique de Jean Racine, and the cantata Uns ist ein Kind Geboren attributed to J.S. Bach. You can stay informed of special events by signing up for our weekly email.
