Doxology Handwashing Timer

Doxology Handwashing Timer
Nina Nicholson, Director of Communications

In order to protect against flu and coronavirus, it's recommended to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds - the length of time it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" twice. If you get tired of singing that, you can also sing the Doxology! Here's a demonstration by Emma Moyer (soprano), Vivienne Longstreet (alto), Roy DeMarco (tenor) and William Butron (bass), students at Westminster Choir College and choir section leaders at St. George's, Maplewood, NJ. Video by Nina Nicholson.

Note: This video is intended as a guide to singing the Doxology. For guidelines on correct handwashing technique, see
