Music Ministry


Cathedral Choir

The St. Paul Cathedral Choir is a mixed-voice ensemble which sings for the Sunday 12:00 PM Liturgy from September through June. Under the direction of the cathedral’s Music Director, Donald Fellows, rehearsals are held each Thursday night from 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM. Repertoire of the Choir is drawn from the fifteenth century to the present. For membership information please contact us via phone or email and ask for the Cathedral Music Director, or the Cathedral’s Organist/Associate Music Director.


Cathedral Schola

The Cathedral Schola typically leads the singing of Solemn Vespers on the Sundays of Advent, Lent, and other Solemnities. Plainsong, psalm-tones and other unaccompanied singing comprises the repertoire of this Chant Choir.


Cathedral Ringers

The Cathedral Ringers handbell choir plays for major feast days throughout the year, generally every 4 to 6 weeks.  Our membership and bell assignments change according to the availability of the ringers.  During the Christmas season we ring two octaves of handbells.  When additional ringers are available we ring 3 to 4 octaves.  Rehearsals are held Thursday evenings in the cathedral, from 6:30 PM until 7:20 PM.  Several members sing with the choir, which rehearses at 7:30 PM in Synod Hall, following the handbell rehearsal. Contact director Ken Danchik for membership information.


Cantors

Saint Paul Cathedral makes full use of the Ministry of the Cantor. Professional cantors serve for the Cathedral’s weekend liturgies: Saturday 6:00 PM, and Sunday 8:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 12:00 PM and 6:00 PM.
