Music at Saint Ann’s is concerned with one thing: the glorification of God. Drawing on centuries’ of Anglican and Episcopal musical traditions, along with over a thousand years of sacred music from around the globe, we have programs that enable singers and instrumentalists of all abilities to contribute to the worship and liturgy of the Episcopal Church in Lyme-Old Lyme. There are many ways to participate in the musical life of the Parish.
This is the most visible and regular way to participate. Membership is open to anyone and consists of volunteers, parish membership is not a requirement, and section leaders are drawn from the Institute of Sacred Music at Yale University, as well from our local region. The choir sings each Sunday at the 10:30 am service, which may be a service of Choral Matins or Holy Eucharist, and rehearses on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:15 am. The Choir also offers Choral Evensong four times a year, and begins our liturgical year with Advent Lessons and Carols Service on the first or second Sunday in Advent. Potential members should have some prior singing experience, and the ability to read music is always helpful. Contact the Director of Music for more information.
During the summer, our parish choir is on holiday. We enlist the aid of soloists to enhance our worship from June through August. Please contact the Director of Music if you are interested in supporting this ministry.
