Sing with understanding. (1 Corinthians 14: 15)


Notes from the Choir Loft is a weekly publication conceived to further the music ministry in our parish. All of us sing in church–from the altar, from the chanter’s stand, from the choir loft, or from the pews–and this singing is living prayer, the soul of Divine Worship. But to “sing with understanding,” we must immerse ourselves into the Hymns of the Church, grasp their essence with our minds and hearts, and make the effort to move out of complacency and into action. God-willing, NCL will answer this call to worship; it will present 3 subjects: The Hymns of the Church, Orthodox Hymnographers, and ponderings on Liturgical Singing – all of which will run sequentially from week to week. May this effort be God-pleasing!
