The Big Music Sunday Service
The Big Music Sunday Service – 6.00pm BST Music Sunday 14th June 2020
All are invited to join us in celebrating the role of music and musicians in church life. This year instead of coming together in our churches and communities for special services and events, we invite you, your fellow congregants, friends and families to join us in this very special service.
The Very Revd Dr John Hall, RSCM Chair of Council (and recently retired Dean of Westminster) will lead the service during which you will hear choirs from home and abroad, and be able to join in with hymns, songs and responses.
The service book, which includes all the music including hymns, psalm, anthems and canticles by John Rutter, Margaret Rizza and Charles Villiers Stanford, as well as a specially commissioned anthem by Thomas Hewitt Jones, Hymns and Psalms and Sacred Songs, can be downloaded below for a small fee* but, as with the Big Easter Evensong, this entitles you to circulate the music amongst your choir at no further cost.
To get involved
- Download the music for the service here. There is a small one-off charge * but this allows you to share the music with your choir and will support us in our work.
- Share the music with all the singers in your choir
- Tell your friends and contacts about the Big Music Sunday Service
- Use the practice tracks to rehearse in your own time (The practice tracks can be found at the bottom of this page).
- Let us know you are joining by using the link here
- Join us on the RSCM Centre YouTube channel at 6.00pm on Sunday 14th June – here is the link – and SING YOUR HEARTS OUT!!
Whether you choose to just listen to the service or to sing with us, do join the RSCM on Music Sunday.
* We are a charity – we don’t get money from the government, or from the church – and we need to make sure we are able to continue to supply the resources and help that is needed now more than ever. Thank you.
