Music Ministry

Music serves the people of St. Thomas as we worship through the creative interaction between Liturgy and Music. Music invites us to worship, nurtures us, and enables us to be the Body of Christ in the world.

 

Our Adult Choir, Minor Miracles (Youth Choir), Bell Choir, and Instrumental Accompaniment provide the music of St. Thomas.​

The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, Is Ending

In the Early Middle Ages, it was common for non-monastic Christians all across Christendom to combine the evening and night-time offices of vespers and compline as a way of bidding the day farewell with thanksgiving, praise, and prayer.  

In Anglo Saxon, the Latin word vesperas (“evening prayer”) was translated as æfensang, and the word has been in use since the conversion of the Saxons in the 6th century.

The Service of Evensong everywhere in Christendom can be traced back to this ancient practice, using the same prayers, psalms, and readings, particularly of The Magnificat.  But in the Anglican Church, there is a particularly rich and long unbroken tradition of plainchant and settings of the canticles that remains a vibrant part of our church’s story.

But it’s one of those things that cannot be told. 

Come experience it with us, and give thanks for the ending of the day.
