Lift Up Your Voice
- Lift up your voice is melody-line music for singing in worship without needing a choir, band, or organist to lead it, and without needing to clear copyright.
- It is music for congregations to use ad hoc to add a lift to spoken services.
- It is the RSCM’s recommendation of high-quality, easy-to-learn items for the non-music-reader.
- A short video explaining more can be found here.
- The selection, drawn from a plethora of sources, has been honed to save you time and trouble.
- The choices are achievable and inspiring. They stand up to repetition.
- The selection covers various seasons, circumstances and worship preferences. Lift up your voice is ecumenical, practical, and economical.
- The music can be introduced to a service with a minimum of explanation.
- By listening to the recordings and watching the videos available on each product page.
- No one has yet disliked it on our taught 'lift up your voice' introductory days. That is a very good sign!
- No, since it is worth singing anyway. Also, we have a bolt-on stream called...
- 'Pick up your instrument' for those many churches with one or two instruments, rather than a “group” or “ensemble”.
- Yes! The teachings from the day courses have been taken back to real churches and used with great success. See, for example, footage from our day course in Devon, and the hugely positive response we received in the Diocese of Bangor!
