“Those who sing pray twice.” -St. Augustine
Music takes a place of great importance in the liturgies at Christ Church. Congregational singing, the cornerstone of music in our worship, is supported by many choral ensembles, all requiring various levels of skill and dedication. We also host a concert series – Sacred Music on the Square – which focuses largely on the music of the renaissance, baroque and 20th century, and provides the downtown area with music of the highest possible quality.
ECU Chamber Singers in Concert – May 13
The 40-voice, internationally renowned Chamber Singers is the premiere choral ensemble at East Carolina University. They strive to weave a love of singing, a powerful interpretation of the text, and a beautiful range of emotions into each concert program. On Friday, May 13 at 7 p.m. in the Church, they will present the final concert of their 2022 Mountain Tour. The program will feature a variety of choral works, including music of the Russian Orthodox Church, Marian texts by Poulenc and Mäntyjärvi, and a choral-organ collaboration with Christ Church’s very own, David Jernigan.
