O Holy Night, as sung by David Norris. Christmas Eve 2014

Musicmakers

Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise. For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. Psalms 33:1-4

In the Episcopal church, we tend to reject the idea of “either this or that” and replace it with and/both. Nowhere is the idea of and/both more apparent than in our approach to music. Many of us feel closest to God when we hear – and sing – lovely, traditional hymns. Numerous others feel inspired when they hear – and sing — the sacred in more contemporary music. In the Christ’s Church Musicmakers group, we love both traditional hymns and contemporary songs, secular and sacred, that deepen our understanding of, and connection with, God.

We invite both experienced vocalists and exuberant newcomers to join our group and amplify the joy we all find in music. We practice on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 under the guidance of our music director Kathy Mordeaux, an accomplished pianist and composer. We sing at the 10:30 service almost every Sunday and at special events throughout the year.
