Anglican Musical Heritage

The Anglican musical tradition is for music and song to be part of what the congregation offers to God. Sacred Anglican music has been passed down through church history, from the book of Psalms and the canticles of Miriam and Mary, to Christ’s hymn singing after the Last Supper.

Our worship services are filled with hymns, chanted psalms, anthems, and organ music. In accordance with Anglican musical tradition, our sacred music is directed towards God as “an outward and visible sign” of the worth we give to God in our worship.

 “Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.”
Psalms 47:6, KJV

“Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm. With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.”
Psalms 98:4-6, KJV
