Episcopal Church est. 1643
THE ST. PAUL’S CHOIR
The St. Paul’s Choir is the main choir of the church, and sings the 10:30 A.M. Sunday Eucharist. Throughout the year, the choir also sings occasional Evensongs and presents an annual Advent Lessons and Carols service. Rooted in the Anglican choral tradition, the choir’s repertoire comprises high-quality music from Renaissance through the modern day. Most of our music ranges from moderately to very difficult , and typically our members feel privileged to sing a large quantity of repertoire of substance, beauty, and challenge. We maintain a commitment to exquisite tonal production in the style of the British men and boy choirs. We welcome new singers who possess excellent music reading skills and voices that easily blend. Those interested in membership should contact organist and choirmaster Charles Lindsey, Jr.
YOUTH IN THE ST. PAUL’S CHOIR
We have in the past had separate offerings for youth choirs, but currently we encourage youth interested in music to sing with the St. Paul’s Choir on either a regular or intermittent basis. Supplemental training in the form of music-reading, theory, and vocal training is available from the choirmaster for those teens who express interest in singing with the St. Paul’s Choir. Separate youth choirs, such as our recent Bristol Singers girls choir, are formed based upon interest and numbers. Anyone younger than a teenager would be considered for the St. Paul’s Choir on an individual basis or may wish to participate in the quarterly Children’s Choir (see below).
CHILDREN’S QUARTERLY CHOIR
Each quarter, the parish holds a day-long Vacation Bible School. Prior to and during the Bible School, children within and outside the parish are invited to sinAg a song for the 10:30 A.M. Eucharist on the Sunday following the Bible School. For more information on the Bible School and the Children’s Choir, you may contact the Church Office.
