Music at St. Matthew’s

At St. Matthew’s Church, music is a key part of our worship.  Indeed, music is a ministry of its own at St. Matthew’s.  We are most fortunate to have as our Music Director Anthony Newman, who is a world-renowned organist and harpsichord player.  He directs our choir, which has six professional singers and five volunteer members.  Dr. Newman and Trish Hussey, our professional alto singer, perform music at the 8:00 a.m. service.  Dr Newman and the choir perform at the 10:00 a.m. service.  Music at this worship service includes choir anthems and, with the help of the parishioners, hymns during the service.

The choir’s musical repertoire includes works by Bach, Beethoven, Gounod, Handel, Mozart, Purcell, and many others.  The professional quality of the singing augments the worship service substantially each Sunday and attracts many new parishioners to our Church.
