Music at Epiphany Parish reflects the ethos of liturgical worship. Our worship is firmly rooted in the rich, centuries-old tradition of Anglicanism. Music, as the “handmaid of the liturgy,” exists to give all a voice of praise and thanksgiving in worship. Music is sung and played—all to the glory of God and the edification of the congregation.
Under the direction of Tom Foster and Kathea Yarnell, our choirs provide musical opportunities for all ages and abilities. We make music a central focus of our worship life, both on Sunday morning and by weaving a rich choral beauty into special services throughout the year.
Although we always strive for excellence in our music-making, our ultimate goal is expressed well by Scottish minister, musician, liturgist, and teacher, John Bell: “Thus there are no active and passive partners in worship. All are involved. When some give of their singing, then others give of their listening, and thus the Body of Christ is built up in faith and makes a corporate offering to God.”
