Music at Trinity

 

“Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise. The gift of language combined with the gift of song
was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through Music.”

 

-Martin Luther

 

Music has been central to the worship life of Trinity Church since its founding in 1847.  Through war, famine, plague, peace, and joy, songs of praise have resounded from the historic pink church on Jackson Avenue in New Orleans’ Garden District for over 170 years.  Through our weekly Choral Eucharist, Trinity Artist Series, and seasonal liturgies and concerts, the music at Trinity Church draws our community into a rich experience of sung prayer through the beauty of worship.

TRINITY CHOIR

The Trinity Choir is a semi-professional choir of 25 musicians that sings for the weekly 10:30 Choral Eucharist, feast days throughout the year, and occasional services and concerts.  The repertoire of the choir is rooted in the Anglican choral tradition, and encompasses everything from various styles of chant to modern sacred choral works.  Rehearsals take place on Sunday mornings at 9:00 and periodically during the week throughout the year.  Membership in the choir is by audition, and interested singers are encouraged to contact Dr. Paul Weber, Interim Organist and Choirmaster (pweber@trinitynola.com).

 

ORGANS

The organ in the chapel is a 2-manual, 8-rank instrument built in 1937 by the M. P. Möller company and renovated by Holtkamp.  The organ in the church is a 4-manual, 80-rank mechanical action instrument built in 1990 by the Redman Organ Company of Fort Worth, TX.  For more information about these instruments, follow the link here.
