MUSIC AT ST. DAVID'S
Saint David's is a warm, welcoming, spiritual home for people from various religious backgrounds. We echo this diversity in the musical styles shared in worship. We offer traditional hymnody, grounded in Episcopal identity and theology, poetry, and gravitas; spirituals, which reflect the faith and hope of many of our brothers and sisters from various corners of the Anglican world; gospels,which bring urban energy and engagement to worship; and contemporary songs, which emphasize relevance and connection to our modern world. We do all this through choral works, special music, Anglican chant, preludes and postludes to worship, and through congregational singing.
We sing and pray in an awarenenss of the wider world of Christian experience, preparing for the day when we will all sing each other's songs of praise around God's Throne in glory.
CHORAL SCHOLARS PROGRAM
One of the ways we support and value music in worship is the creation and sustaining interest in our Choral Scholars Program. The pairsh provides a modest stipend for music majors from a local university (currently two students) for their participation in choir during the program year. The students offer musical backup and a high level of understanding and leadership which aids the choir in a number of ways. A yearly fundraiser replenishes the fund and helps to perpetuate this program that seeks to provide worthy students with employment and also raise the quality and zeal of worship.
