The Angel Voices helped us to "reflect on the essence of God" Sunday morning as they performed "Traces", a poem set to music by Garrett Krause and an a cappello offering of "Ubi Caritas". Brent added the translation to the worship folder stating that "Where charity and love are, God is there. The love of Christ has gathered us together. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Let us revere and love the living God. And let us love from a pure heart. Amen."

The Sanctuary Choir added their music ministry to the "World Food Sunday" reflection with their performance of "A Thanksgiving Garden" by J. M. Martin. With Brent conducting and Garrett on the piano their rendition of "For the Autumn Sky" contributed immensely to the service.

Music Sunday morning was fitting for the World Communion Sunday. The Sanctuary choir, directed by Brent and accompanied by Garrett Krause, sang joyfully and the hymns for the service, "Come in, Come in and Sit Down" and "Let Us Talents and Tongues Employ" raised the roof with enthusiasm from the congregation.  Guest performers for Sunday service were Layrissa Warne on Violin and David Dixon on piano.

On Wednesday, October 4, a large group of music enthusiasts were on hand to listen to Emmet Cahill and his accompaniest, Seamus Brett, perform at St. David's. Standing ovations happened not once but twice, the first occurring when they sang and played a medley of songs, unique to Calgarians, requested from the audience and the second, in response to "O Danny Boy." Thanks to Brent, the choirs (who joined Emmet and Seamus for two selections) and the Marian, whose enthusiasm was contagious.
