Notes
The author writes about the potential and the challenges of building a music program for small congregations who cannot afford a professional organist. Consider another instrument, a single guitar or flute perhaps. Have a rota of musicians and ask for guest musicians from the community. "Parishes fortunate enough to have a small choir or music group should rethink their expectations of how they function. Robes are not necessary, nor do members have to be separated from their families in the pews unless they are singing special music. Anthems may be offered whenever the group is ready rather than every week. It is good, though, to have regular rehearsals to build skills and confidence". The author teaches voice and choral music at Algoma University and for the Algoma Conservatory. She is also a music director at St. Luke's Cathedral in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

Notes
Canon John Erb visited the Montreal Boys' Choir Camp, held at Camp Canmac on Lake MacDonald, north of Lachute, Quebec, in August 2002. The Montreal Choir Camp course began in 1961. "There were about 50 young people and a very large staff, from churches as far away as Winnipeg and Chicago, Garden City, Long Island, Ottawa, Toronto, Boston, Albany, Montreal, New York and Virginia, with an ecumenical flavour of RCs, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Episcopalians and Anglicans". "The leadership figure and source of this glorious music interpretation is Patrick Wedd, Director of Music, Christ Church, Montreal".

Notes
"'I started music lessons at age four' [David Michael] Leggett says. Trained in piano at Toronto's Royal Conservatory of Music, a child member of Toronto's St. Simon-the-Apostle Anglican Church choir under Eric Lewis and an assistant organist at Grace Church on-the-Hill under Giles Bryant, Leggett specialized in music teaching. While on staff at Fern Avenue Public School in the Little Poland district of Toronto's west end, he founded the school choir and instrumental groups. In its augural year the choir placed first in 17 of 18 competitions". "[I]n 1970 he brought together some of his former pupils, by then in high school, in the Fern Alumni Chorus and Orchestra. In its second year, it made a well-received church tour of England, Scotland and Wales, performing in high-profile venues such as Canterbury Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. The alumni chorus disbanded in 1980, but that was not to be the end of it. Leggett re-established the choir in March 2012". "Specializing in sacred music but mixing things up with Broadway show tunes and traditional ballads, the new group ('the Alumni-Alumni Chorus' as its members fondly call it) rehearses two Sunday afternoons a month at St. Martin-in-the-Fields Anglican Church. Its most recent concert at St. Martin's, on Mother's Day, 2014, raised $1,000 for the Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund, a summer camp program for disadvantaged kids".
