Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who make up our leadership.
Here are a few of the people that make our church community special:
The Rev. The Reverend Eleanor Prior – Bridge Priest
The Reverend Eleanor Prior was called to serve at St. Paul’s November of this year, as our Bridge Priest, after serving as the Canon Pastor for the Cathedral of St. Luke, in Portland Maine.
Ed Stauff – Music Director
Ed studied music at Yale while earning a B.S. in computer science.
In addition studying and performing organ music, Ed has always been fascinated by the inner workings of the King of Instruments. As a teenager he immersed himself in the literature of organ building; in the 1980’s he bought and rebuilt a small pipe organ in his basement. In the early days of the World Wide Web, Ed began compiling a website that listed names of organ stops. This work soon grew into the Encyclopedia of Organ Stops, which is now accepted as the most comprehensive work of its kind.
Ed took a regular position as Minister of Music for St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Middlebury VT. It was there that he started coming into his own as a composer and arranger of sacred music. During that time he created ChristmasCarolMusic.org, the first website to offer free sheet music for dozens of traditional Christmas carols. A few years later Ed reluctantly left Vermont to return to high-tech opportunities in greater Boston. Settling once again in Nashua, in 2008 he answered the call for a new music director here at St. Paul’s. Ed continues to compose and arrange sacred music, and his works are frequently heard in services at St. Paul’s.
