RSCM London's Area Festival Saturday 6th May 2017 has as its theme Saints and uses a super book called With Saintly Shout and Solemn Jubilee, published by RSCM and available from the RSCM website or directly from Norwich Books and Music (tel. 01603 785906). Choirs and individual singers from all over London and beyond will learn the music, attend a preliminary rehearsal in the 10 days before the event - various venues across London see list below), then rehearse together in St Paul's Cathedral in the afternoon on Saturday 6th May. After a short break we'll sing evensong.
Suitable for choristers of all ages from 7 years.
The cost of this event is only the price of the service book: £6.50 (£4.88 to affiliates and individual members of RSCM). See sample pages. Please type in the code LFSB17 at the checkout so we know you've got your book.
