Early Music at Saint James, a part of the diverse musical offerings of Saint James Episcopal Church, Lancaster, PA, is a self-sustaining concert series that presents three to four professional performances each year of music composed before 1800 in our beautiful and acoustically rich sanctuary. The concerts of primarily Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music are informed by historical performance practice and played on faithful reproductions of historic instruments. The series offers a venue for small and/or emerging ensembles, and presents a rich repertory of music composed before 1800 that is not otherwise available to the Lancaster community. Ticket revenues, tax-exempt gifts, grants, and sponsorships support the concerts. Early Music at Saint James also strives to enhance the worship experience in full cooperation with our Minister of Music by contributing to the performance of early music at the 10:15 a.m. Sunday Mass and the monthly Choral Evensong service.
