The Language of Our Hearts
At Saint Mark's, our music builds on a strong English choral tradition. From prelude to postlude, our music seeks to express the hopes and hurts, the fears and longings of our hearts, often in ways words alone fail to capture. Saint Mark's choir supports the congregation gathered to offer its thanks and praise or to submit its lamentation and outrage. As Saint Augustine said, 'the one who sings prays twice.' And so it is here at Saint Mark's as we endeavor, through our sung prayer, to center God in the life we share.
All Cathedral liturgies include their own kind of music, whether the silence of Sundays at 8 a.m., the shared hymnody of Sundays at 10:30 a.m., or the choir anthems of Sundays at 5 p.m. Music at Saint Mark's is a gift that is both given and received, and we each play our part as both giver and receiver. And beyond our Cathedral liturgies, Saint Mark's shares the gift of music through public performances and through the bell tower, which rings over Loring Park each day.
