Music is an integral part of worship at CtK. Although music finds its expression in various forms, the adult choir is a significant contributor to parish life. Under the direction of a paid, part-time professional organist and church musician, the choir leads the congregation in singing the hymns and responses, uses the traditional Anglican chant for the psalm and sings a motet or anthem at Communion, Offertory or during other parts of the service. The Director of Music opens and closes the service with an Organ Voluntary or a piece of chamber music together with musical members of the parish. The choir sings a wide range of classical repertoire and draws on the resources of a sheet music library which contains early Renaissance through to late romantic and contemporary music.
The CtK Young Singers is a choir for children from the ages 6-16. It rehearses regularly, directly after the Sunday service, and numbers about 15 children. Also led by the Director of Music, this vivacious group often teams up with the adult choir or performs pieces on its own at regular intervals during the year. Important contributions are made on special church occasions, including the service of Lessons and Carols, the Christmas Pageant and even the Thanksgiving Lunch.
The congregation has many professional singers and instrumentalists who also share their talents in Sunday morning worship, particularly during choir holidays. In the past, the Youth Band has provided contemporary songs as well as their own compositions for an annual youth service. Resources in this group include vocals, guitar, violin, trumpet, percussion and piano. Some members of the congregation are also occasionally active in leading contemporary worship songs, enriching the aesthetic diversity of the parish.
