Introducing the Platinum Project

We are honoured that Her Majesty the Queen is our Royal Patron.

To mark the Platinum Jubilee in June, we have specially commissioned a new choral piece: In Our Service from Thomas Hewitt Jones. Thomas writes: ‘I was absolutely delighted to have been asked by the Royal School of Church Music to write this work to celebrate HM the Queen’s special jubilee. Queen Elizabeth II’s reign is typified by selfless service to her country.

Encouraging for all

The 4-minute anthem picks up themes of service and dedication and is deliberately written to be something which is really enjoyable to sing (and will have lasting value beyond the jubilee itself). 

The Digital Downloads provide everything you need to learn the music with your choir. It contains music for Full SATB Choir, Unison Choir and a leadsheet for singers. All downloaded pdf files may be emailed to the members of your choir, or photocopied for them to use without further charge.

It is suitable for cathedral and church choirs, but also choral societies, chamber choirs, community choirs and schools.

Next steps

  1. If you have a choir, purchase a copy and plan it into your schedule of music, ready to sing on or around the Jubilee weekend – Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2022.
  2. Follow us on social media (links below) and share your progress with the music by tagging us and using #RSCMplatinum #InOurService
  3. Share the invitation to join the initiative with all the choirs you know. Do it now – this is the moment!
