Music for the Liturgy

The cathedral choirs are an essential part of the liturgical life of our worshiping community, and the Choir of Girls, Boys & Adults provides music for both our weekly 10:00 am Eucharist and Evensong and other special services throughout the year.

Weekly Eucharist

Sunday mornings, 10:00 am / In person & livestreamed to Facebook & Youtube

The most important work of the Cathedral Choir is to provide music for the 10:00 am Eucharist, every Sunday from September to early June. On the 1st and 3rd Sundays, the Trinity Choir (the adults of the Cathedral Choir) helps to lead worship, whereas on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays, that leadership role is expanded to include our Choristers.

 

The musical offerings of the choir help enhance the messages and themes of the chosen readings for the day, and the repertory spans over one thousand years of sacred music, from medieval to modern. Ecumenical and eclectic are apt descriptions for musical role played by our singers – terms that suit the broad range of backgrounds within the Cathedral’s congregation. 

Evensong

Every Sunday afternoon, 5:00 pm / In person & livestreamed to Facebook & Youtube

First Sundays / Organ Recitals precede the service at 4:30 pm on the first Sunday of the month

Rest, reflect, and listen: Evensong at Trinity offers time and space for quiet meditation as we are each invited to pray for the our own needs and the needs of the world. Through music & spoken word, sound & silence, we invite you to find a “thin space” in which to encounter the mystery & beauty of God. 

 

Join us for this weekly liturgical feast of scripture and music led by the Cathedral clergy and by Trinity’s musicians—as well as an array of visiting choirs and organists. All are welcome: no exceptions.

Third Thursday Evensong

Monthly on third Thursdays, 6:00 pm / In person only, behind the altar rail in the choir

In addition to Sunday Evensong, we offer a weekday Evensong on the third Thursday of every month, led & sung by the trebles of the Trinity Choir School. Join us behind the altar rail in the choir for this brief and beautiful monthly service!
