  EPIPHANY MUSIC


Our choir is always welcoming new voices,
 please don't hesitate to join us for practice
Thursday nights at 7:00

 

  

Our summer session excludes practices as we ask people both from within and outside the choir to share their musical talents with the congregation. Practices will resume on Thursday nights at 7:00pm in September.

 

The choir has Thursday night practices with anthems to prepare for every Sunday and extra music for Easter, Advent, Christmas and for Holy Week. If you want to sing please join us!

 


- Sunday morning warmup at 10:00am, we have an anthem every week.

- Thursday night practice held at 7:00pm in the choir stalls, until early June when we break until Sept. This year we will halt practices on June 21st. We have completed some challenging music this year thanks to Paul's direction.

- Mid December was our annual Christmas Lessons and Carols service.

- Lent is busy NOW with special selections for Holy Week.

 

Our Extra Christmas Music selections were:

Advent IV and Christmas eve both receive different selections. As we do the Advent carol in the morning and Little Drummer Boy at the Christmas Eve Service, then O Come Emmanuel  (accommpanied with a flutist) at the Late night service. We certainly hope our selections now and at the Advent Carol Service have enriched your worship experience. Christmas Wishes for the Epiphany choir.

We are led by our organist Paul Wharram as we prepare extra music at festival times and we love having guests. The choir is always open to new members. We are self sufficent for purchasing music and choir gowns while also financially supporting the parish. We assisted with the church sign, instrument tuning, and general parish funds.


 

Our important role in the church rests with regular choir practices, participation each Sunday and preparing special music for occasions like the Bishop's visit, Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas.

HARVEST Lessons & Carols was a joint collaboration of the RCCO held here in Epiphany with choral voices and 2 bell choirs. Thank you to all who participated.

The choir rests for summer and Paul looks for other musical talents to volunteer to fill in. We've had folk guitar leadership, a spanish Ave Maria and various duets to name a few, add to our summer worship over the years. Thank you to all for sharing.

We sing music responses during worship; for example the Agnus Dei (Lamb of God) arrangement by Peter Nardone, also Lord Hear our Prayer and 5 fold Amen.
