Icon MusicEpiphany is fortunate to have an outstanding choir, a strong music staff,  beautiful instruments, and wonderful spaces in which to make music. Music is a core strength of Epiphany, and we strive to uphold a standard of excellence in all of our musical offerings – both in terms of repertoire and performance. Our Music Guild was created to uphold that excellence, provide vision for the music program, and to sponsor world class concerts for our community. We hope that you will learn more about our musical life, and join us for a choral service or concert.

Organs & Instruments

Epiphany is fortunate to have two fine pipe-organs, seven grand pianos, and a harpsichord with which to perform, sing, and teach. We are passionate about sharing these beautiful instruments with our parish and with the wider Seattle community. Click below to learn more about the musical resources on our campus.

132 Church Of The Epiphany Seattle 820x1024

The organ in the church was installed in 1997 by American organ builder Fritz Noack. It’s playing action is mechanical, which allows for optimum control of the speech of the pipes from the player. The tonal design of the Noack allows it to comfortably play music of a variety of styles and time periods.

Chapel Pasi

The organ in the chapel was installed in 2016 by Tacoma-based organ builder Martin Pasi. Its action is mechanical and its construction is based on the same time-honored principles of the organ in the church.

In 2010 a spinet harpsichord was donated by parishioner Bill Hoppin. It was replaced by Mr. Hoppin in 2014 by a full-size, Flemish-style harpsichord from the workshop of Frank Hubbard in Boston. Its exterior finish was restored in 18th-century antique style under the direction of parishioner and antique specialist David Weatherford. It is currently at home in the chapel and moves easily to any location for performances.

Epiphany is fortunate to have seven grand pianos (three Steinways, one Kawai, one Steiff, and two Chickerings), and one Baldwin spinet piano on campus. Most notable are the Kawai in the choir room, the Steinway in the church, and the 1901 Hamburg Steinway in the Chapel.

Music Lists

Music at Epiphany Parish is firmly rooted in the centuries-old Anglican tradition. Though this may mean that you will hear much music from the English Cathedral repertoire, we are also committed to expanding definition of what the Anglican Tradition is. At its core, the Anglican musical tradition is about excellence in music making, not only about compositional style. As a result, we sing music spanning six centuries and a variety of musical styles.
