Our Parish and Handbell Choirs

St. Boniface Church is committed to excellence in music and liturgy!

The St. Boniface Parish Choir, well known throughout Sarasota, has been the focal point of our excellent music and liturgy for several decades. Our choir, made up largely of volunteers, is led by our Organist/Choirmaster, James Guyer, and supported by lead singers for each section of voices. In addition to the primary Sunday liturgy, they also sing several concerts and prepare major music for Christmas and Easter. Currently rehearsals are on Sunday mornings at 8:56 a.m.

The St. Boniface Handbell Choir plays five octaves of Schulmerich handbells and three octaves of Malmark chimes.  The Handbell Choir presents special music on occasion for the 10 a.m. service and other events.  New members are welcome!

the St. Boniface Organ

organ shot

This instrument leads us all during worship and draws the community at large into our church through our concerts and recitals. The organ’s tonal design was inspired by both the instruments of Bach’s time and the great cathedral instruments built in 19th century France. The instrument also incorporates sounds useful for anthem accompaniment in the English-American Episcopal tradition, and ethereal effects suitable for the quieter portions of the service. This eclectic approach has served our music program well, leading the congregation in hymns, supporting the choir and providing a thorough palette of color to serve the organ literature.  Read more...
