Music for worship in schools

Resources published by the RSCM as part of its Voice for Life training scheme contain music appropriate for use in school worship. In particular, you might like to look at the material contained in Young Voices Festival services and Voice for Life Songbooks.

Some archive copies of Gold Dust newsletters, containing training tips and music suggestions for young singers, are available to download from RSCM Music Direct.

Resources created by the Church of England in collaboration with the RSCM for worship in schools can be found at

Exsultet for the Easter Vigil

An edition of the Exsultet is available as a digital download from RSCM Music Direct. It sets the text provided in Common Worship: Times and Seasons, including optional refrains. It is adapted from the Roman tone that has been in common use in the Anglican tradition since the version made by G H Palmer a century or so ago.
