 Music at Grace Church

Music at High Mass reflects the beauty of the Anglican Catholic tradition, drawing heavily from both the Anglican and Roman Catholic musical traditions. The Choirs of Grace Church regularly offer great sacred music, prominently featuring the beautiful polyphony of the Renaissance era, and Gregorian Chant, the most ancient music of the church.

The parish Chamber Choir, made up currently of 8 volunteers and a professional cantor, produce the core of the singing at High Mass. This choir and cantor sing the Introit, Offertory, and Communion “Minor Propers” to their traditional Gregorian Chant tones, one or two motets or anthems, and a setting of part or all of the Ordinary of the Mass. The choir has premiered new works by distinguished composers including Christian Carey, Jonathan Dawe, and Daniel Elder.

Coming soon are a Community Choir and a chant Schola.

Additional voices come from the choristers of the Choir School at Grace Church, a Royal School of Church Music affiliated program which provides musical training to children and youth. If you would like to add your voice to any of the choirs, or have a child who would like to join the Choir School, do not hesitate to contact Father Bates orthe Director of Music.

Outside of services, we offer a variety of concerts and recitals performed by organists, chamber ensembles, and choral ensembles to enrich the musical life of Downtown Newark.
