“The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.” -Johann Sebastian Bach

At All Saints’ Beverly Hills, music is an essential part of our weekly worship – one that provides a transcendent opportunity to experience the Divine. Whether we listen to a glorious anthem sung by the Choir, chant an ancient Psalm, sing from our hymnals or dance to the rhythms of a contemporary song, music helps us to refresh, renew and glorify God in worship.

For many years, our Music Ministry has enjoyed a well-earned reputation for excellence and innovation. While our All Saints’ Choir remains the cornerstone of our musical life, the Parish Choir, Choristers and AS2 musicians also contribute to defining a musical voice for Episcopal/Anglican worship in the 21st century. Music at All Saints’ resonates both within our parish and to the larger Los Angeles Community.

Our choirs include those from age eight to those who would rather not mention their age and provide phenomenal opportunities for musical and personal growth, fellowship and service. On any given Sunday, the Choirs of All Saints’ Church offer a wide variety of meditative opportunities to worship amid the sacred sounds of the great choral music of all ages, from ancient plainchant to classic masterpieces to premieres of modern works including those by our own world-renowned composer and organist, Craig Phillips. Our AS2 musicians provide a new voice for worship weekly, revealing the religious and theological themes that pervade contemporary music. Regardless of the service time and style, All Saints’ is a singing congregation. Whether a voice in the congregation is strong or weak, we join our voices in song mightily week after week.

Supported by the Music Guild, we offer a Chamber Music series unlike any on the West Side of Los Angeles. Music of different styles and genres is expertly brought to life by some of the best musicians in Los Angeles and the country. In addition to our Chamber Music offerings, we offer worship services outside of Sunday morning where music is largely the centerpiece. From nearly monthly services of Choral Evensong, to services in the style of Taizé and annual services of Lessons and Carols for both Advent and Christmas, there is something here for everyone.

If you’d like to find out more about singing at All Saints’ or participating in any aspect of our inclusive Music Ministry, Craig Phillips and Jason Klein-Mendoza would love to hear from you.

    Join for Choral Evensong, the most uniquely Anglican of services. Many find Evensong to be a service of rare, even mystical beauty.
