The aim of Saint Peter’s music ministry is to draw us close to God through the special power of music to open our hearts to God’s presence.
Our worship services always include song and instrumental music carefully chosen to complement the liturgical season and lectionary readings for the day. The Saint Peter’s choir sings a broad repertoire ranging from Renaissance polyphony to contemporary compositions. Special choral and instrumental music is performed on Holy Days and during the seasons of Lent and Advent, such as the Lessons & Carols service of the Christmas season.
