Music is very important to the worship life of this congregation. There is a long tradition of strong choral music at HTC. Accompaniments are well-served by the use of a pipe organ and grand piano.

Our choir remains the centre-piece of the music, and their faithful service, week after week throughout the year continues to be an inspiration to everyone.

The choir is present at all 10:00 am services during the year, including throughout the summer. There are also occasional special events. A joint Concert with the Royal Westminster Regimental Band is always a highlight of the Christmas season. From time to time the choir presents special concerts where a wide spectrum of popular and classical music is performed. For these concerts the choir is often supplemented by other singers from the wider community. They are always great fun.

Our Musical Director is Kyumin Jacqueline Lee.  Kyumin teaches music at Burnaby North Secondary School and has a background in choral music.  She joins Holy Trinity Cathedral this year after served as musician at Saint Alban's Parish in Richmond.

The Anglican Church of Canada’s hymn book, Common Praise – the “Blue Book” – is our basic source of congregational hymns. It is supplemented by Songs for a Gospel People – the “Green Book” and contemporary hymns particularly from “Renew” for which the words are printed, with permission, in the bulletin. We try to have a mixture of singable new and traditional hymns at every service.

As an Anglican church we sing much of the service. These songs are now familiar to the congregation who are encouraged to join in.

Music, whether choral, congregational or instrumental, heightens and reinforces the Liturgy. If it happens to be an enjoyable experience for the congregation as well, that is a bonus. We strive to achieve both these objectives. We always welcome new contributors to our church music.
