The music ministry of St. James’ Church, vibrant and rich, reflects the diversity of our worship style but is firmly anchored in the Anglican heritage of liturgy and music, a tradition that embraces a thousand years of great music from plainchant and Renaissance polyphony to the very best of contemporary composition.  Our three choirs provide music for weekly Sunday worship, but also for our “First Sundays at Five” Evensong and recital series and for special services during Christmastide and Holy Week.

There are music-making opportunities at St. James’ for all ages, and we welcome committed new choir members at any time. The 8:40 service choir rehearses Wednesdays at 5:30 pm. The 11:05 service choir rehearses at 6:45 pm. To get involved contact Don Messer The Children’s Choirs rehearse at 5:30 and 6:00 pm and sing for designated services throughout the church year. To get involved contact Sarah Little.

Many thanks to all who support the rich variety of music offered at St. James’ Church. Our recital offerings are made possible by the generosity of many: in the memorial bequests dedicated to our music ministries, in wedding and funeral donations made to our volunteer choir, and in simple offerings by our devoted attendees, As we begin this new 2017-2018 season, we thank all of our “Friends of Music” for your continued presence and financial support. We hope that you find yourself uplifted, challenged, renewed, and inspired in myriad ways that only music can render.

Soli Deo gracias, Donald Messer


St. James’

– Adult Music

I play the notes as they are written,

but it is God who makes the music.

Johann Sebastian Bach


Psalm 150: 1-6

Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!
