Welcome to RSCM St Albans, Hertford and Bedford Area

Our Mission – The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) is an educational charity, whose mission is to ‘promote the study, practice and improvement of music in Christian worship.’ Its motto is ‘to sing with the spirit and the understanding also’ and this points to its dual role of encouraging musicians and raising standards. The RSCM now numbers over 11,000 members and affiliates worldwide, whose common belief is that Christian worship is enriched by good music, used effectively. Members are offered support and guidance through local and national events and publications. Read more about the RSCM on the RSCM Centre website at www.rscm.org.uk.

Awards – The Bronze, Silver and Gold Chorister Awards Scheme is open to singers of all ages. Through this scheme many choristers have been encouraged and rewarded for their skill, talent and commitment. It is designed to fit in with the overall RSCM Voice for Life Chorister Training Scheme and further details can be found on the page especially devoted to awards.

Local Voluntary Networks – A significant amount of RSCM work is carried out through local voluntary networks, which are based on geographical location, broadly centred on Anglican Cathedrals. The St Albans, Hertford and Bedford Area is one such area, and events here may take place as far afield as Bedford, Hertford and Watford, for example, as well as in St Albans Abbey, which offers a dramatic setting for large-scale choirs festivals.

Hertfordshire Music Service – We are part of the Hertfordshire Music Education Hub which promotes all kinds of music for children and young people in the county. For more information visit the Hertfordshire Music Service website.

Programme of events – A programme of events is organised throughout the Area for organists, choir trainers and singers of all ages and experience as well as ministerial and congregational events. Details of these are published on this website, which is updated regularly.
