The Good Shepherd Choir leads our parish in the worship of God through the liturgy of the church. It is open to all singers high school age and older. The Choir sings at most 10:00a Sunday Eucharist services and the services of Principal Feasts, Fasts, and Holy Week. Because learning music together requires consistency, group members are asked to participate in both Wednesday rehearsals and Sunday services as often as possible.

Rehearsal: Wednesdays, 6:54p & the Second Sunday of each month before 6:00p Evensong
Windsor Campus

The Evensong Choir is a subset of the Good Shepherd Choir that is devoted to the singing of Choral Evensong on the second Sunday of the month during the program year. The Choir’s repertory focuses on plainsong and Anglican choral literature from the Tudor era to the present.

Rehearsal: Sundays, before the 10:30a services
Windsor Campus

The Summer Choir is a great opportunity for members of the congregation with limited time to contribute to the musical life of the church! The Summer Choir sings and leads worship through the summer months (June-August). It is open to singers in middle school age and older, and no experience is necessary. Singers are encouraged to participate as often as their schedule allows.

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd has a long history of excellence in music, and the nurturing of music for our children and young people has become a top priority for us. Our goal is to create a program for our children which offers a global approach, integrating music theory, history, and the physiology of singing with their choral training, at a developmentally appropriate level. For this reason, we have affiliated with The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM), the premier organization dedicated primarily to voice training for children. The RSCM offers a graded, multi-level choral program with well-defined progress markers and a system of rewards for achievement. Their program, called Voice for Life, covers all aspects of individual and choral singing, and we’ll start implementing the program this coming September.

The pipe organ on our Windsor Campus comes to us from the Létourneau Organ Company in Ste. Hyacinthe, Quebec The overall design concept is that of a ‘divided’ organ; the greater portion of the instrument is located in the gallery at the rear of the nave. The second, smaller component will be installed in the chancel area, but at a later date, as funds become available to complete the project. The entire instrument will then be playable from a 3-manual (keyboard) and pedal console, which occupies the same space and footprint as that of the previous organ. The Gallery organ is voiced in the French manner, with broad diapasons, colorful flute ranks, and fiery reeds, resulting in a bright, assertive tone well suited to the canon of organ music from the Baroque through the 21st century. By contrast, the Chancel organ, when complete, will have the warmth of tone typical of English romantic instruments, commending itself to the choral and organ music of the Anglican tradition.  When complete, this instrument will consist of 55 ranks (sets of pipes), featuring over 3,000 individual pipes, ranging in size from that of a pencil to 16 feet in length.

When complete this will be a beautiful and versatile instrument, and a real contribution to the musical life of our parish and that of the greater Austin community.
