Music and the Arts

At Atonement, we celebrate the God-given creativity of EVERY person, and actively seek to incorporate beauty and creativity into all of our worship and programs.

Music enlivens our Sunday 10 am service and 7 pm Taizé service, including special musical offerings throughout the year: Advent Lessons & Carols, Caroling, Christmas pageant, Lenten Meditations, Arts & Music Festival, chamber music recitals, and our Youth Ensemble.

We have a long history of association with the arts. Many of our stained glass windows were designed and assembled by Lamb Studios here in Tenafly, now registered in the Library of Congress.  For many years the Lamb family were active members at Atonement.  We are also proud to display Ella Condie Lamb's “An Advent Angel” which was exhibited at the first "World's Fair" in Chicago where it won the Dodge Prize for best painting by a woman artist. Our congregation raised funds to restore the painting in 2021 to celebrate our 150th Anniversary as a parish.

 

The stained glass window over the altar is a Maitland stained glass depiction of the early Church martyrs, St. Sophia (Wisdom) and her children, Faith, Hope and Love.  It is also a symbolic depiction of maternal & divine love.  The Latin inscription above is taken from I Corinthians 13.
