Music

 

Music holds a place at the heart of our worship and Christ Church is justifiably proud of its high-quality music program. The program is run by Director of Music David Baskeyfield and Associate Director of Music Thomas Gaynor. Both David and Thomas are grounded in the Anglican cathedral tradition and are internationally renowned organ performers in their own right. The core of the music program is the Christ Church Choir, an ensemble some 30-strong, comprising volunteers assisted by eight professional section leaders. The choir’s repertoire spans some five hundred years of music, from the Tudor composers such as Tallis, Byrd and Gibbons, through Stanford, Parry and Howells, to contemporary composers. Aside from Sunday mornings, the choir sings regular services of Choral Evensong, a cherished part of the Anglican/Episcopal tradition. The choir is a friendly and welcoming group that rehearses Wednesday evenings, 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Newcomers are always very welcome! We are also continuing to develop our RSCM-affiliated treble chorister program. For information on either of these groups, please email David at music@christchurchipittsford.com
