And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God... Luke 2:13
The Choir of Christ & Saint Stephen’s consists of eight New York professional singers.
Although they all come with a wealth of choral experience for blend and liturgical empathy, the choir members also have active solo, oratorio, and/or operatic careers within the USA and Europe.
The choir sings the principal Sunday morning Choral Eucharist service (with reduced numbers during the summer), as well as extra services for the major feast days and other special services, such as Choral Evensong during the year. A wide range of repertoire is sung during the course of the liturgical season, from the late Medieval and Renaissance period, through the 20th Century to compositions of the present day, but with an emphasis on Tudor England and the great Anglican Choral tradition. The choir has commissioned music by prominent American composers such as Bruce Neswick and Robert Lehman, and has been directed by respected visiting conductors such as Paul Spicer, Brian Jones and Jared Johnson.
