horus Angelorum, has been directed by Ed Franklin since its inception in 2001. Ed is now retiring and we are gratefull for our interem director, Dr. Giles Brightwell, organist/choirmaster of St. Thomas Church and School in Meyerland. Dr. Brightwell has extensive experience in Anglican choral music and liturgy. Chorus Angelorum is a semi-professional chorus devoted to the propagation and continued use of the traditional music of the Anglican Church. (Read more about the origins of the Chorus)

Historically speaking, the Book of Common Prayer of 1549 - along with the King James translation of the Bible, Coverdale's translation of the Psalms and the plays of Shakespeare - is credited with establishing the English language as we know it and is renowned for its beauty and poetic grace. The Book of Common Prayer of 1662, similar to the 1928 Prayer Book used in the United States until 1979 when it was replaced by a revised service book, is still the officially recognized Prayer Book for the Church of England.

The language of the Prayer Book has inspired some of the greatest choral music written for the Church in the past 450 years and remains a valuable source for contemporary composers.

The chorus is in residence at Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Church & Shrine. The Church is located at 7809 Shadyvilla Lane, near the intersection of Westview and Wirt, just north of I-10, Katy Freeway

On January 1, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI established the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter and installed The Rev. Msgr. Jeffrey N. Steenson as the Ordinary of this most historic establishment, with jurisdiction over the USA and Canada. Pope Benedict also established Our Lady of Walsingham, Houston, the primary church of the Ordinariate.
