Jazz Vespers is Back – Vaccination Certificate Required

December 19 at 4:30 pm

When it comes to holiday tunes you don’t forget, there’s Bing Crosby wishing for a white Christmas, and Nat King Cole roasting chestnuts on an open fire.  And then there’s Linus and Lucy, Vince Guaraldi’s jazzy theme from A Charlie Brown Christmas that’s been in our ears just as much for more than fifty years.

Jazz Vespers at Christ Church is a popular, informal service held every other Sunday afternoon from September to June, and featuring some of the city’s finest jazz musicians.  Our Jazz Vespers include a reflective reading and prayers for the needs of the world. A voluntary collection is taken.

The Story behind our

Tracking Organ

Our magnificent three manual, tracker-action organ was installed in the chancel of the church in the spring of 1982 and dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of those who died in the First World War and the Second World War.

The organ, built by the Karl Wilhelm Company of Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, has a classical continental design. The case is made of white oak and the pipe shades are of carved butternut. Voiced in the classic French style, its 36 stops and 50 ranks are capable of interpreting a wide variety of organ literature.

Installation required considerable changes to the chancel including moving the altar forward and arranging choir seating to either side. These renovations prompted the design and production of our award-winning Benedicite Kneelers, done in needlepoint by a dedicated group of church members.
