Lent 2019 Music List
Epiphany 2019 Music List
Adult Choirs of St. Margaret's
From September through June, the 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services of The Holy Eucharist, Rite II include service music and special offerings by the various choirs and musical groups of St. Margaret’s Church. Each Sunday has a different musical focus with the Chancel Choir serving as the anchor choir and offering traditional church anthems. They sing on the first Sunday of the month and currently rehearse weekly on Wednesdays from 7-9pm. Our Motet Ensemble offers music from the Renaissance, Baroque and contemporary eras. They sing on the second Sunday of the month and rehearse weekly on Mondays from 6:45-8:15pm p.m. Both adult choirs combine to offer music for larger services, including Advent Lessons & Carols, Christmas Eve, Easter Sunday and Pentecost.
Our young Spirit Singers, who practice on Mondays at 5:00 p.m., offer a variety of music especially written for children’s voices. Open to all children in grades 1-5, they learn the basics of singing and music, and typically sing on the fourth Sunday of the month, either on their own or with with Youth Chorale. This ensemble practices on Mondays at 5:30 p.m. and is open to all children in grades 6-12. In addition to singing their own repertoire on the fourth Sunday of the month, they frequently join the adult choirs throughout the year. Make-up rehearsals for both choirs usually take place on Wednesdays at 5 & 5:30pm.
The Third Sunday Band
This group regularly offers contemporary Christian music to accompany worship from September through May at 9:00 & 11:15 a.m. on the third Sunday of the month. Special services will also feature additional soloists and instrumentalists.
For those parishioners and children who play a stringed instrument, we offer a string ensemble that provides special music periodically throughout the year.
