Music and Choir

Rejoice through song.

 

Music During Worship

Trinity Church has a long-standing tradition of excellent music and is currently enjoying significant growth in this parish. Our musical mission reflects St. Augustine’s words, “He who sings prays twice.” Our music program presents great music in the Anglican tradition while exploring works of contemporary composers such as Arvo Pärt, John Tavener and John Rutter.

And, for all of you history buffs, the church has been home to some historically important musicians, most notably the “American Pachelbel,” Charles Theodore Pachelbel (1690-1750), son of Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706), and William Selby (1738-1798).

The Trinity Choir

Trinity’s choir plays an important role in all liturgies. In addition to leading the congregation in hymnody, the choir praises God through the singing of excellent choral music. Trinity’s choir currently consists of over twenty adults accompanied by four choral scholars.

The Trinity Choir is open to experienced adult singers of any age. In addition to singing two anthems and a chanted Psalm every Sunday, the choir sings occasional Evensongs, Compline, concerts, weddings, and funerals. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 and Sunday mornings at 8:45, in preparation for the 10:00 service. If you are interested in joining our choir, please email our Music Director, Nicholas Voermans, at musicdirector@trinitynewport.org.
