St. James' Choirs
St. James' Church has a strong musical presence.
In an average Sunday service, the congregation and choir sing six hymns, a psalm, and three selections of service music. We are always looking for new choir members.
Our Minister of Music is composer Richard Lloyd. He is also a lecturer, accompanist, composer and advisor in the Theatre and Dance Department at Hamilton College.
To be a member of the all-volunteer Adult Choir is to be a leader of worship. Our choral music is an offering to God. While of high caliberer, it is intended to enhance worship; it is not "performance" music.
The choir often sings hymns in four-part harmony. Many different styles of sung psalm are used including cantor/response, Anglican chant, and the Ionian, Portland and St. Martin's Psalter. The choir also sings an offertory anthem in four to eight-part harmony. On special occasions, pieces such as Lotti's Crucifixus, Allegri's Miserere, Thompson's Alleluia, and the Wilcox arrangement of Lord of the Dance are offered.
Thursday rehearsal, 7:30-9:00 pm (Sept-May) is lots of work, but also a time of fun and camaraderie.
Feel free to try stop by and join us.
In addtion, other groups use our space including Tapestry - All Century Singers, and the Outcast Theatre group.
