Music in Liturgy
You would be hard pressed to describe music at Grace with one word, but maybe eclectic is the one. The music in our liturgies, on Sunday morning or special seasonal services, is both uplifting and deeply grounding - drawing upon varied sources and genres from many traditions and across many generations. You will hear old hymns and new songs by composers from within our own community and from around the world. We sing songs - sacred music from prophets young and old - from the present day, and from many years ago. Music is carefully selected to reflect the Episcopal lectionary, but not always predictably! Music is congregational and experiential, allowing for new understanding and insights into the retelling of our familiar stories. You Call That Church Music? is Ann Strickland's blog for liturgists. It will give you an idea of the different ways we use music in liturgy at Grace. Contact Ann if you have any questions, [email protected].
