Our Music Director - Mel Hurst

Melvin J. Hurst 589x800Humbercrest invited me to come as their Director of Music in 2004 after a twenty-three year tenure at Kingsway Baptist Church. And suddenly, I am going into my tenth year in this faith community!

My academic preparation includes an  A.R.C.T. (Associate Diploma with the Royal Conservatory) in piano, a B.Ed. with Distinction (University of Sask.) and M.Mus. (University of Oregon, USA) in choral literature. This graduate degree included studies in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Our lives are enriched by time spent in another country. This was particularly true for me, as I had the good fortune to study with outstanding German musicians, notably Helmut Rilling, a scholar in the music of J.S.Bach.

Our Choir

The Chancel Choir leads the Ministry of Music every Sunday morning from the beginning of September until the end of June each year. This semi-professional group of choristers offer an eclectic repertoire, supportive of the Lectionary readings, week by week. You will hear anthems by Canadian composers, spirituals, global song, gospel songs and the traditional English anthems. Each year the choir presents two or three major works with orchestra. Humbercrest has long been known for the superb acoustics in the sanctuary and a tradition of fine choral music. Come for several weeks and you will experience thoughtful and beautiful worship. Be enriched as you spend time with us, and perhaps your heart will be strangely warmed.

Our Organ

Our organ is a three-manual instrument from the St. Hyacinthe factory of Casavant Frères. It has 39 stops (31 of which are speaking), 21 manual couplers, 13 manual registration pistons, 4 general toe pistons and a full organ piston. There are nearly 2,000 speaking pipes, varying in length from 3/8 of an inch to 16 feet, and some 35 miles of copper wire used in its construction.
