Yorkminster Park Baptist Church Choir (Choir)

Founded: Toronto, Yorkminster Park, Canada

Yorkminster Park is the largest Baptist church in Canada (= YPBC). Its choral repertoire is taken from the English tradition accompanied by an excellent Casavant Freres organ built in 1928. The 65-voice choir, made up of professional and amateur singers, is renowned in Canada for its English cathedral musical tradition. The organ boasts 5670 pipes and is one of the finest in Canada. In 1996, William Maddox succeeded his teacher, Catherine M. Palmer, as Organist and Director of Music of the Church. Under his direction the choir enjoys a reputation as one of the best congregational choirs in the city of Toronto. The choir has recorded a number of collections of hymns and religious music that are available commercially.
