St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow at 4pm on Saturday 17th September is the next time you can hear RSCM Scottish Voices sing in a service. It will be Choral Evensong, and we will be singing:
Laudate Nomen Domini (Christopher Tye)
Preces and Responses (Bernard Rose)
Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis in G (Herbert Sumsion)
Faire is the Heaven (William Harris)
Before then, at 7.30pm on Wednesday 7th September you’ll be able to hear us very briefly if you’re a personal RSCM member or a member of an affiliated choir as we perform for only a few minutes at the Meet the Director event in St Mary’s Cathedral, Glasgow organised by RSCM Scotland when members of the RSCM can, as the title suggests, come to meet Lindsay Gray, the Director of the Royal School of Church Music, and listen to him speak about the work of the RSCM. If it works, this link should open a PDF poster which is on the RSCM Scotland website relating to the event. You can’t just turn up, you need to register for this event and details of how to go about that are on the RSCM Scotland website.
For those who are members of RSCM and who have sight of their inhouse publication The Network you may already be aware of the Meet the Director event, but that publication wrongly states that the choir will be performing a recital, and in fact the PDF poster on the RSCM Scotland website says it’s a concert. It won’t be anything like a recital or concert, it’s merely us singing a few pieces at the start of the evening, and it was never going to be anything other than that!
