Music has long been an especially outstanding part of the Emory Presbyterian Church experience. In our Sunday morning worship life, we use the newly compiled Glory to God hymnal. However, this collection is often supplemented and enlivened with international music from other traditions and cultures, Taize prayer refrains, and older Gospel hymnody. While the focus of each worship is on our communal music-making, the Chancel Choir weekly offers anthems ranging in style from Renaissance motets and Baroque oratorio choruses to spirituals and hymn arrangements.
Our Director of Music, Paige Mathis, leads us in song and directs our Chancel Choir.
During the academic year, the Chancel Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. During the summer, the choir practices at 10 am on Sunday mornings before worship. Whether you are a rock star or you think you can barely hold a tune, all are warmly invited to join us. After all, the scripture says, “Make a joyful noise to the Lord!”
