11 AM Choral Eucharist

Our 11:00 AM Choral Eucharist includes some of the most beloved sacred choral and organ music known.  Our eight-member professional choir is joined by volunteers to sing anthems, motets, chant, and plainsong, as well as lead congregational singing for hymns.  Our hymnody comes from the broad Anglican Tradition and also includes spirituals and new music.  If you are interested in singing with our Sunday morning choir, please contact our music director, Mr. Cleveland Kersh at organist@holytrinity-nyc.org

The Reiger Pipe Organ

The three-manual and pedal Rieger organ of 55 ranks is placed in a wide but shallow case having five levels of towers. Located in the south transept of the church, the organ surrounds a large stained-glass window without covering it. All pipework is of high-percentage tin, except for the Positif Flûte (oak), the Postif Cornet (25% tin), and the Pédale Bourdon (oak and pine). The Positif Chamade is mounted horizontally inside the case. The grand ravalement of the Pédale extends the range down to AAA and affects all stops in that division. The tonal design of the instrument, built in 1987, was by Anthony Newman, who was organist at the time.  Read more about the organ and see specifications here
