The Music Program
The Music Program
Music pervades the life of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church.
Music is an integral part of parish worship. The E.M. Skinner organ and the parish’s choirs enhance the meaning, beauty, and mystery of our worship services.
Music brings pleasure to mid-day audiences every week in free Wednesday organ recitals.
Music is a very active component of our community outreach.
Choir of St Ann and the Holy Trinity
Rehearsal takes place at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday before the service, and on occasional extra days as we prepare for special offerings at Christmas, during Holy Week, and Easter Sunday. Membership is open to any who read music, and who are interested in singing the great music of the Anglican tradition.
Those who wish to learn more about participating in the choir should contact Gregory Eaton, Director of Music, at the church office.
The youngest members of the parish have their own chance to embellish services of worship. Open to all parish children, the choir rehearses several times a month after the service while the adults are enjoying coffee hour, and it performs on specially selected Sundays. The music is chosen for ease of mastery by children of any age and for its appeal to the singers. Direct inquiries to Gregory Eaton, Director of Music, at the church office. (See Children’s Programs.)
The Peabody Memorial Organ
Wednesday Organ Recitals
Gregory Eaton began the free Wednesday lunchtime organ recitals in 1999. They have only gained popularity over time; a group of regulars, plus drop-in office workers and tourists, show up promptly at 1:10 p.m. each week. The program is chosen by the organist, usually Mr. Eaton, but sometimes by visiting organists eager to play the famous organ. Music can vary from Bach fugues to ragtime, from the French Romantics to composers living today, and covers all periods. Admission is free, but voluntary offerings are invited, which are applied to the cost of restoring the Landmark organ to its original 1925 condition.
