Royal School of Church Music
We are an accredited school and member of the Royal School of Church Music.
We take part in the RSCM's Voice for Life programme. You can find out more by clicking the pdfs below or visiting their website.
Our choir of over 100 pupils, sings an anthem at the School Mass in Christ the Saviour Church each week. The school mass is firmly in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England and thus pupils also support the singing of parts of the Missa de Angelis and some other modern settings.
In line with the RSCM, we seek to develop the following discipline and skills in our choristers: -
- posture & presentation
- tone & breathing technique
- accuracy of notes/pulse
- phrasing & confidence articulation & security
- sense of style
- content & presentation of evening service
- reading aloud scripture & prayer
- awareness of musical ministry
- liturgical awareness
- music for different seasons
