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.

Choir rehersal

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.

Adult choir

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.

Children's choir

Our youngest choir sing simplified tunes.  They are generally too young to read, so the words are memorized and often simplified. The children sing at special services such as the Christmas/ Epiphany Pageant, Palm Sunday and Easter.

The Children's Choir rehearses on Sunday mornings, after the service, the week or two before each major feastive service.

In addtion, other groups use our space including Tapestry - All Century Singers, and the Outcast Theatre group.
