Let all the world in every corner sing
St. Timothy's is blessed to have parishioners who love to sing. The hymns for our 10 am Sunday choral services are selected specifically to ensure everyone can easily join in. We primarily rely on the Common Praise (1998) hymn book but frequently draw on additional resources for modern, traditional, gospel, and beloved hymns. One of our favourites is "Called to Lead the Church of Jesus" sung to the original tune St. Timothy's Agincourt New, written and composed in 2016 by parishioner Charles C. Cooke. "As did Timothy the sainted, so shall we of Agincourt!"
Supporting the singers in the congregation are the volunteer members of St. Timothy's mixed-voice SATB (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) choir. In addition to leading the hymns and supporting the sung parts of the liturgy, the choir presents a musical offering each week. The repertoire is wide-ranging, including traditional English anthems, gospel music, and modern compositions. If you enjoy singing and revel in the fun and camaraderie of belonging to a musical group, then the choir is the place for you. It's much easier to sing in a group than alone. No formal musical training is required. You'll learn everything you need to know at choir rehearsal. If you'd like to give it a try, please join us any Thursday evening at 8 pm in the South Transept of the church and see what you think!
The High School Choral Scholars
The St. Timothy’s High School Choral Scholar program, founded in 2006, provides performance experience and training for young pre-professional singers in a choral setting. The scholars provide support to the choir and provide congregational leadership at the Sunday 10 am service. If you’re interested in becoming a choral scholar, please contact the Music Director for further information.
