St. Stephen’s is proud to present W. A. Mozart’s Requiem in concert. This performance of one of the great choral orchestral masterworks of the 18th century will feature the St. Stephen’s Choir and friends with members of the Richmond Symphony. Proceeds from the event will support the music program at St. Stephen’s.
Recordings by St. Stephen's choirs, including Sanctuary and the Virginia Girls Choir, are available online. These newer recordings, as well as older CDs of the parish choir and the organ, are also available in the Bookshop @ St. Stephen's. All of these recordings make wonderful gifts.
Sanctuary is the self-title CD recorded by our Compline choir. It features many of the chants and motets heard during our Sunday evening Compline service.
An Unexpected Christmas features the Virginia Girls Choir and Ana Hernandez singing some "unexpected" Christmas arrangements and songs, as well as traditional carols. More details about this recording are here.
A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a recording of the program aired on 88.9FM WCVE on Christmas Eve 2015. It features Sanctuary, Virginia Girls Choir, St. Stephen's Choir and the new Virginia Boys Choir, and includes the nine lessons read by clergy and parishioners.
