Anglican Chorale of Southeast Florida
                            
The Anglican Chorale of the Diocese of Southeast Florida exists to sing the beautiful service of Choral Evensong and to renew and nurture this heritage throughout Southeast Florida. Based at Trinity Cathedral, the chorale is currently directed by Christopher Harrell, Associate of Music and Liturgy at St Philips Episcopal Church in Coral Gables.

The Anglican Chorale is comprised of talented volunteer choristers, many of whom have musical jobs elsewhere on Sunday mornings (at Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist and Lutheran as well as Episcopal churches), although the group also attracts unchurched musicians who enjoy getting through a large amount of music in a short amount of time. Participants hail from as far as Deerfield Beach and Homestead.

The chorale was founded in 2008 by two British organists resident in Miami at the time: Matthew Steynor (Director of Music at Trinity Cathedral, 2007-2019) and Simon Jacobs (Organist at Saint Thomas Episcopal Parish, 2007-2010). Since its formation the chorale has sung at Diocesan services, committed to a regular schedule of Evensongs and sung an annual Lessons and Carols Service and a choral work at Passiontide (eg. Wood's St Mark Passion, Pärt's St John Passion and Haydn's "Seven Last Words"). The formation of this Diocesan choir received coverage in The Miami Herald (view article here). In 2013 members of the chorale toured the UK, singing the services at Bristol and St Albans Cathedrals. In 2016 the chorale made a recording, "Holy, Blessed Trinity", some of whose tracks appear on their youtube channel.

 

As part of its mission to nurture the heritage of the Anglican tradition throughout the Diocese, the Anglican Chorale is pleased to sing at other churches in the Diocese; in recent years the chorale has visited churches in Biscayne Park, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, Fort Lauderdale, Homestead, Miami Beach, Miami Springs, Pompano Beach and Westchester

The Anglican Chorale rehearses on Tuesday evenings and sings Evensong usually twice in a month. Prospective members are welcome to sing in a service and the prior rehearsals, before undertaking a short audition, which will consist of some vocal, intonation and sight-singing exercises, in addition to singing a short extract from the repertoire learnt for the service. Please contact office@trinitymiami.org.
