The Music Program at All Saints Catholic Church
The mission of the Music Program at All Saints Catholic Church is to help the community celebrate our Christian faith through communal song , choral music , vocal solos and instrumental meditations .
The musicians at All Saints employ a wide variety of musical styles to reflect the great diversity of people who come to worship at All Saints . This diversity is also reflected in the use of other languages besides English in the song lyrics . Our community sings in English , Spanish , Tagalog , Portuguese , Tongan ,
Igbo , Chamorro , Latin , Greek and Hebrew .
All Saints is fortunate to possess two beautiful keyboard instruments which serve as the principal support for the community’s singing : a six foot grand piano and an acoustic pipe organ which was originally installed in 1911 and was repaired in 2012 . Other instruments used include guitars , bass , percussion , flute , violin , trumpet , saxophone and two Filipino and Hispanic stringed instruments called the “ vihuela “ and the “ bandurria “.
