The Royal School of Church Music’s ‘Come and Sing Fauré’s Requiem’ annual come and sing event takes place this Saturday (23rd March 2019 – rehearsal 2.45pm, performance 6.30pm) at St Mary’s Church, Nantwich.
The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) is the heart and home of church music.
It is an educational charity committed to promoting the study, practice and improvement of music in Christian worship.
It is an open, life-long learning organisation, offering face-to-face and distance education and training through its programmes, published resources, courses and activities.
The RSCM supports a world-wide membership of churches, schools and individuals, and is sustained by thousands of donors and volunteers worldwide.
Founded by Sir Sydney Nicholson in 1927, the RSCM’s original emphases were English and choral.
Now, in a diverse international context, the RSCM’s work is far broader and more diverse, and it aims to make all of its work ecumenical in purpose, nature and content.
Gabriel Fauré’s Fauré Requiem is one of the most well-known and beloved of choral masterworks.
