30 Mar Music in worship
The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) promotes the study, practice and improvement of music in worship.
In the absence of all of the usual routines of life, we RSCM has put together a whole range of initiatives, which will help to hold everyone together.
For everyone, wherever you are: The RSCM website features, free for all, Hymn of the Day, and Sunday Self-Service – a simple act of worship with music, readings and prayers which will change weekly. Specific resources for Holy Week and Easter will be available in due course. RSCM will shortly be adding a daily vocal warmups video – a short session to keep your body moving, and voice in good shape.
For choristers (of all ages): RSCM has recently launched their Showbie app, which has support materials for RSCM Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. See here for more details. This was originally launched to trial the concept, but RSCM are now adding much more content to it. This will include, for each level, some pieces which choristers can learn from the syllabuses by following the teaching videos which will appear shortly.
