Directed by RSCM Director Andrew Reid

This year we shall be using the RSCM publication “Reform & Renewal” which is available from RSCM Derbyshire, or online from




The Gathering                   A Mighty Fortress is our God arranged by John Rutter Prayers of Penitence        English troped Kyrie by Andrew Reid
The Word of God              Jubilate from the Short Service by Thomas Weelkes
Psalm 22                          set to Anglican Chant by George J. Elvey
Greater Love                 by John Ireland
Prayers of Intercession   Music by Margaret Rizza
The Sending Out               Ubi Caritas by Ola Gjeilo

There will of course be additional hymns, readings and prayers. The music has been chosen to provide a mix of the simple and complex whilst remaining totally accessible for a wide variety of home church circumstances. The book itself provides a great musical resource.  

If you feel you would like help with preparing the music, the please get in touch and we shall arrange for you to join a rehearsal with another choir.

Refreshments will be provided throughout the day and you are welcome to bring a packed lunch to eat in the church. 

An indication of numbers as soon as possible would be helpful. I shall look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you.
