Blessed with a sacred space possessing sublime acoustics for vocal and instrumental music, we celebrate the sacred gift of music at the Cathedral  In addition to providing venues for musical organizations throughout the region, our Sunday morning communion liturgies involve extensive congregational singing, not only of traditional hymns with organ, but of unaccompanied part singing and chanting. Our liturgies also create moments for meditative musical reflection when the voices of the Cathedral Singers emerge from the silence following a sermon or communion to sing an inspired anthem from not only the rich Anglican tradition, but international music, American sacred jazz, and the African American Spiritual.
