Woman Composer Repertoire Day – Come and Sing

The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) and Society of Women Organists (SWO) are hosting a joint Come and Sing event, showcasing new music written by female composers, on Saturday July 15 at St Giles Cripplegate, London EC2Y 8DA.

The workshop is led by Katherine Dienes-Williams (Organist and Master of the Choristers at Guildford Cathedral and SWO Patron) and accompanied on the organ by Imogen Morgan (Assistant Master of the Music at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh and SWO committee member).

Repertoire to be performed in the workshop will be suitable for the liturgical season from All Saints to Epiphany, which allows choral directors who are keen to diversify their programming an early insight into new compositions.

It includes music by Sarah MacDonald, Joanna Forbes L’Estrange, Ghislaine Reece-Trapp, and Margaret Rizza.

This is a rare, interactive chance for anyone wishing to explore fresh sacred music by women composers, or alternatively to appreciate the joy of discovery and the pleasure of making music together with other singers.

Booking is available via the RSCM website (entry £10).
