All Saints Liturgical Choir
The All Saints Liturgical Choir, one of the best parish choirs in South Florida, sings for the 10:30 liturgy September through Pentecost. The choir profile includes very skilled volunteers, four professional section leaders (SATB) and an octet of high school scholars drawn from Florida Singing Sons Boychoir and the Girl Choir of South Florida.
Rehearsals are each Thursday 7 to 8:30 p.m. and Sunday’s at 9:15 a.m. prior to the 10:30 liturgy.
The Summer Choir sings in June and July with less demanding repertoire. Rehearsals are on Sunday mornings only at 9:15. We welcome new members throughout the year.
Diverse repertoire spans all periods with particular emphasis on great anthems in the Anglican Cathedral tradition, Renaissance motets, and newly composed sacred works from the 20th and 21st centuries.

JAMES K. BASS, GUEST CONDUCTOR: Franz Biebl wrote his iconic “Ave Maria” for an all-male Bavarian Firemen’s Chorus in the summer of 1959. From those humble beginnings, the piece made its way through the glee clubs of U.S. universities before being performed and recorded by the pre-eminent all-male vocal ensemble, Chanticleer. Seraphic Fire now performs the Biebl and explores the tradition of music for men’s choirs that inspired this singular work.
