Charles Villiers Stanford Centenary 2024

Charles Villiers Stanford, one of the great choral composers of the late 19th/Early 20th Centuries, died in March 1924.

As executors of the Stanford estate, the Royal School of Church Music publish a vast range of Stanford's music, and we hope you will join us in celebrating the music of this great composer. We will be planning a number of special events throughout the year which will feature on this page.

Conducting Stanford: an online workshop with David Hill – Stanford 100

Calling all conductors!

This free online Zoom session, led by distinguished conductor and Stanford expert Dr David Hill FRSCM (director of the Bach Choir, Principal Conductor of Yale Schola Cantorum), and conductor of the BBC Singers and), will offer practical advice on how best to conduct some of Stanford’s best-known pieces: O for a closer walk with God, the Jubilate in Bb and his Evening Service in C. All three compositions are available in the RSCM’s new publication, Come & Sing Stanford Evensong. The session is free, but donations will be gratefully received.
