Welcome to Saint Paul! A rich, diverse community that puts great emphasis on the power of music in worship. We enjoy a full choir for the majority of the year, and also host musicians from our community and abroad. At the head of this ever-growing program is Cantor Mark Alan Filbert, an esteemed musician in his own right who has grown the music program at Saint Paul in tremendous ways. We encourage you to reach out with ideas for new concerts, or to let Mark know how much you enjoy his work—and the work of all the musicians in our community. And remember: don't forget to raise your voice, and sing!
Love that hymn you heard last Sunday? Or maybe you'd like to listen to it again and learn about its composer. Check out Small Church Music, a site full of hymns you love—complete with organ, piano, and vocal music. There's even sheet music for those who'd love to try their hand at playing at home!
The organ of Saint Paul Lutheran Church was built by the M. P. Möller Organ Company of Hagerstown, Maryland, in 1926. It was subsequently rebuilt and enlarged in 1966 by Morel and Associates and again in 1984 by Möller, at which time the original console was replaced, and a new Great division was added in its present position in front of the organ chambers now housing the Positiv division to left of the chancel and the Swell division to the right of the chancel. The instrument is now comprised of thirty-nine ranks, a set of chimes, and a zimbelstern spread over three manuals and pedal, with electro-pneumatic key and stop action and four levels of combination action memory.
