Music holds a special place in our worship at St. George’s-on-the-Hill. Our talented choir leads us in singing hymns and other music. The repertoire sung in English and Latin reflects a broad perspective of music from the 1500’s to the present.  Other special masses, such as the Marian Mass by W.A. Mozart, and the St.Theresa Mass by J.Haydn, are sung to mark important celebrations in the church year. Occasionally, worship is enhanced by guest instrumentalists.  We look forward to presenting more new, beautiful and challenging music in the coming year, as the music is a reflection of the worshipful nature of the weekly celebrations.

Singing God’s love-song with harmony, faith, and compassion

Sunday Choir

Our choir is a congenial mix of extremely capable volunteers and professional singers committed to attaining a consistent level of singing for the worship.

The Organ

The organ was built in 1973, Op. 3175. Originally built and designed as a Tracker action, it was altered and installed as an Electric Pneumatic action (which most pipe organs are), due to a structural impediment in the roof.  In 2015, the organ was dismantled, cleaned, tuned, the metal screens were removed, and a new oboe stop installed, work that has greatly enhanced the tonal colour and volume of the organ.

The piano is a Heintzman Grand Op. H 61.

Wednesday Church by Candlelight Chamber Choir

The music sung at this celebration ranges from Gregorian and Anglican Chant, to polyphonic motets and Mass settings by composers such as Palestrina, Victoria, Byrd, Tallis, Willan, and Bruckner.  The music is very soothing, sacred, never performed, in keeping with the beauty of the service’s candlelight.

Mark Wood-Salomon (tenor) is the Director of the Candlelight Chamber Choir, along with gifted singers:  Brenda Enns (soprano), Katherine Jones (alto), Steven Vieira (baritone), and Bill Jones (bass).

The choir also features Jennifer McCallum (soprano), Marion Newman (alto), Jimmy Martins (tenor), Michael P. Taylor (tenor), and Martin Gomes (bass) on annual services such the All Souls Day/Samhain service, and our Hebrew-themed music night in partnership with Holy Blossom Temple.
