This prayer is written in choir members’ hymnals and prayed together after services:
Grant O Lord,
that the words which we have said
and sung with our lips,
we may believe in our hearts,
and practice in our lives,
through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.

The Adult Choir

Since 1879, Grace has prized its adult choir, which was originally a choir of men and boys, and is presently a mixed ensemble of men and women who love to contribute to the song of this congregation.

Rehearsals are Thursdays 7:30-9pm and Sundays 9:30-10:15pm.

Music touches the soul in ways that words simply cannot. At Grace Church we believe deeply in the power of music to bring us closer to the divine. Come! Enjoy! Sing!

Music at Grace


Now in its 18th season, this choir is for teens (grades 9-12). The choir rehearses unaccompanied, standing in a circle in the Grace Church sanctuary, a tuning fork the only musical aid, reinforcing the excellent sight-reading skills necessary to function at this level of musicianship. The Choir’s core repertoire consists of unaccompanied motets and madrigals from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries. The full scope of the repertoire engages the singers with lyrics in Latin, Italian, Hebrew, English, French, German, and Spanish.
