MUSIC AT GOOD SHEPHERD

MUSIC SELECTIONS (Easter through Corpus Christi)

 

 


 

MUSIC AT GOOD SHEPHERD

Dr. William J. Gatens, Organist-Choirmaster

 

          At the Church of the Good Shepherd, we strive to maintain a standard of musical worship appropriate to the "beauty of holiness" that is so much a part of our Anglo-Catholic tradition. Choral music is drawn mainly from the English cathedral repertory along with Latin church music and works from other traditions customarily adopted for Anglican use. The Parish Choir consists mostly of volunteers with professional section leaders on each of the principal parts. Anyone interested in joining the Parish Choir is encouraged to contact the Organist-Choirmaster.
