Music at Trinity Episcopal Church

Music is at the heart of our worship at Trinity Episcopal Church. Our choir, led by Ronald Wyatt, leads the congregation in singing hymns on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. The choir also offers special anthems every Sunday. The music at Trinity is in choral tradition of the Episcopal Church. Our choir rehearses on Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings before the 10:30 a.m. worship service. You can watch our worship services on YouTube to hear and experience our choir and organ.


The Sealy Chimes, given in memory of George Sealy in 1929, are played during our Sunday worship services, on special occasions like weddings, and on weekday at 12:00 pm. and 5:00 p.m. These chimes are still played manually and are not on an automatic system and can be heard across downtown Galveston.

Ronald Wyatt, Organist & Choirmaster

An acclaimed concert organist, Mr. Wyatt holds degrees from the University of Texas and Trinity University, where he was awarded the Master of Arts degree in organ. He spent a year in Europe as a student of the celebrated Marie-Claire Alain, with whom he performed on network television. He was also a student of Marie-Madeleine Duruflé, the noted concert organist and wife of one of the twentieth century’s greatest composers, Maurice Duruflé.

Mr. Wyatt has played numerous recitals throughout the United States and Europe, in addition to holding professional posts in churches of various denominations. He was a founder of the first statewide organ playing competition in Texas, which draws students to San Antonio each year to compete for scholarships.

Mr. Wyatt offers an annual Pipe Organ Extravaganza during Galveston's Dickens on the Strand event in December.

About the Organ

Built by the Austin Organ Company of Harford, Connecticut, the organ at Galveston’s Trinity Episcopal Church was completed in June of 1989. The organ includes 4,086 pipes constructed of various woods and metals. The three-manual drawknob console controls five divisions, including an antiphonal division with a brilliant trompette-en-chamade, located in the rear gallery of the church.
