A joyful noise on a Sunday morning

A joyful noise on a Sunday morning

Dana Massing of the Erie Times News profiles the choir of the Cathedral of St. Paul.

Voices, young and old, raised in song, give glory to God.

“Hallelujah,” they sing. “Praise the Lord.”

Accompanied by organs or pianos, even guitars and drums, singers in local churches use their vocal gifts to worship God and enhance services for people in the pews.

“It’s a really wonderful and exciting way to be able to praise God with the talents he’s given all of us,” said Libby Federici, 15, a member of the Children’s Choir at Erie’s Episcopal Cathedral of St. Paul.

What a wonderful piece. One of the glories of TEC definitely is our music.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
