Stephen Hamilton is well-know as a recitalist in America and Europe. For many years he was Minister of Music at the Church of the Holy Trinity in New York City. His playing has been widely praised, as in this review from the Charleston Daily Mail: “The performance had to be one of the supreme moments of music making in this year’s or any year’s Orgelfest offerings.” http://www.stephenjonhamilton.com/Biography.html
The Anglican Singers. An independent chorus of about 30 members dedicated to the English choral tradition, the Anglican Singers are artists in residence at St. James. During the summer of 2014, they were choir-in-residence at Ely Cathedral in England. (http://www.anglicansingers.org/)
