Music at Saint Giles

What Does Sunday Morning Look Like at Saint Giles?

Music at St. Giles

From ancient plainsong to Taize chant, from the richest hymnody of the Anglican and Protestant traditions to Shaker tunes, spirituals, songs from other cultures, and 21st century church music, we sing it all! Several times throughout the year our choir is featured in special services, such as Lessons and Carols in December and Choral Evensong. For more information on our music program, please contact Director of Music Jim Brown at
