At Knox we recognize that music is an integral part of the spiritual experience of worship. Grounded in traditional repertoire, music at Knox features a variety of different styles carefully selected by our organist and choirmaster, Simon Pinsonneault, to enhance the service of worship.
Vespers is the traditional evening prayer service. As day fades to night, lamps are lit in our sanctuary as we join together in worship and prayer. Jazz Vespers at Knox are held at 7pm on the third Wednesday of each month, beginning this September 2013. Quiet jazz will be the backdrop to a time of reflection, meditation, and communal prayer. All are welcome to join us on the following days:
Built by the famed Canadian organ-builders Casavant Frères of Ste Hyacinthe Quebec, in 1933, the organ has been rebuilt and updated on three occasions. Most recently in 2001, the organ underwent a significant restoration and the console can now be moved into the centre of the chancel for performances.
The Lilian Forsyth Scholarship is a tribute to the life and work of the former Knox Church Director of Music. Since Lilian Forsyth was an exponent of the tradition of classical church music, the scholarship is aimed at persons pursuing a career in church music.
