Music

Music at Saint John’s Cathedral has been an integral part of worship in this sacred space for over 140 years. The hymns, Psalms, and anthems sung each week serve as a musical compliment to the liturgy.

  • The Choirs

    The Choir of Saint John’s is comprised of children and adults who are devoted to offering the very best in music to the glory of God. In addition to the Sunday Eucharist, other special services such as Choral Evensong, A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, Tenebrae, and a Requiem Mass are sung by the choir.

  • A Variety of Musical Styles

    When at  Saint John’s, you will hear a variety of musical styles including Gregorian Chant, Renaissance Motets, Spirituals, Gospel, and a host of other styles representative of the breadth of diversity found in the Episcopal Church. Our focus is to offer music of the highest quality to the glory of God in the context of liturgy and prayer.

  • Evensong

    This ancient service of Evening Prayer is offered in the style of the English Cathedral Choral Tradition taken from the Book of Common Prayer. Amidst the sweet smell of incense in our Gothic cathedral, Psalms, scripture readings, canticles, anthems, hymns, and prayers are offered to God at the close of the day.
