Our Music

Scripture   |   Tradition  |   Reason

Music, in various forms, has always been - and continues to be - a very vital and integral part of the worship service at Holy Cross. Whether by voice, piano, organ, or other musical instruments, you are sure to hear a "joyful noise" made onto the Lord at Holy Cross!
 
Members of our choir are active in other musical venues throughout the North Mississippi / Metro-Memphis area, including Beth Baker, who sings with the Germantown Community Chorus, Donna Hopper who sings with the Memphis City Sound chapter of the Sweet Adelines, and David Howell who sings with the Cotton Bowl Chorus of Men's Barbershop Harmony.
 
If you have a musical talent, by voice or instrument, and wish to contribute to the beauty of our music please contact any member of the Mission Committee so you too can contribute your "joyful noise" as well!

The Hymnal 1982




The primary source of music at Holy Cross is the The Hymnal 1982, though we do not limit ourselves to that wonderful book alone and do often use other sources for our musical worship. You may notice, from time to time, a song published in the Bulletin provided you at the beginning of worship services.




The Organ






Our organ in an Allen Protégé™ Organ which has lavish styling and rich sound.


The Piano








Holy Cross was blessed in 2009 when a neighbor, moving to the northwest, decided not to take her piano but to leave it behind and donate it to our church!
 





Other Instruments

In addition to the organ and piano, Holy Cross enjoys music performed on other instruments as well. So, if you have a talent playing the guitar, banjo, keyboard, or most any other instrument, let us know and share your talent - making a joyful noise for all!
