Our music ministries include an Adult Choir, a Youth Choir and Band, our Organist, and vocal and instrumental soloists (flute, violin, guitar). Our goal is to enhance the worship service and bring us closer to God.
Music is intimately bound with the proclamation of the Word, an opportunity for us to express through hymns, anthems and liturgy those feelings that are often difficult to express with words. The music of the Christian faith is meant to deepen and enrich our worship experience. Music has the ability to make us of one heart and voice, a natural response to our living faith.
The Adult Choir is a group of about ten parish members who sing for the Sunday morning liturgy and major feast days. On special occasions, a few members also chime in with ringing bells to the tune and beat of the songs. Choir members also have the opportunity to sing solos. The Adult Choir also enjoys other fun events such as special gatherings at a member’s home for friendly camaraderie, great food, singing, playing and more.
Youth Choir and Band
The Youth Choir consists of young members of our parish who like to sing and join in various fun activities. The Youth Choir usually sings at family services and special occasions. They are trained in choral technique, sight singing and music liturgy.
The Youth Choir also know how to have fun together. They have developed a small band, introducing contemporary worship songs. The Youth Band will be performing at various functions through the liturgical year.
Come join in the fun,
singing, playing, and praising God!
About our Organ
The Church of Our Saviour is blessed with a wonderful
tracker pipe organ, built by Noack and installed in 1971. The organ was
subsequently rebuilt in 1998 and is regularly maintained by Andover Organ
Company. The organ is well-sized for the
church, with the pipes facing out into the nave from behind the altar. The organ handles a diversity of music well,
ranging from the baroque to more modern offerings, and has a good dynamic
range. It serves as a fine accompaniment to the congregation’s hymn singing and
supports the choir’s anthems as well.
The organ has two manuals and full pedal board, and
17 stops, which produce a full, rich sound.
