RSCM Celebration Day 2023

Saturday 14 October
Chester Cathedral

Celebration Day is our annual opportunity to celebrate and give thanks for the work of the RSCM and to present our Honorary Awards.

This year’s service combined with the Chester Area Festival and was a wonderful opportunity for all those who enjoy Evensong to join together to share in this celebration of the work of all our Honorands, church musicians and the work of the RSCM.

As well as members of RSCM churches, individual members and supporters in the Chester and surrounding Areas, the invitation was extended to anyone who enjoys Evensong.

We were delighted that the massed choir was directed by Tansy Castledine, Director of Music at Peterborough Cathedral, and accompanied by Philip Rushforth, Chester Cathedral’s own Director of Music.

The music included:

  • Preces and Responses (John Sanders – Dresden)
  • King’s College Service (Joanna Forbes L’Estrange)
  • Te Deum in B flat (Charles Villiers Stanford)
