Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) – online services

During Lent the RSCM will be holding Night Prayer services every Wednesday, starting  at 8.00pm (GMT) and we would love you to join us!

Every service will be broadcast live on our Facebook page here and our YouTube channel here.

The liturgy will come from either the RSCM’s Night Prayer or Compline (Traditional language) Common Worship publications and will be on the screen as we go through the service.

Choral  music for the services is available to buy on this page and it includes the hymn/anthem and the Nunc dimittis for each service. We will also supply rehearsal tracks so that you can learn the music in advance of the service.  You can access these here.

We are delighted to be joining with other organisations* in encouraging people everywhere to sing hymns at home in this exciting project led by the Self-Isolation Choir.

The project leader, Ralph Allwood, says: “So many people are missing singing and would love to join in some hymns, so I have got eight organists from seven cathedrals and a big church in Texas to play the accompaniments to eight hymns. I then will help them online to join in, and we will make a huge ensemble of everyone singing these hymns. No experience needed”. Howe3ver, there is a £25 charge unless you are a student!

Now is the time to sign up – rehearsals start later this week! (original notice sent 22 Mar 21)
