Read the latest news from Cathedral Music Trust

Financial support of up to £10,000 from Cathedral Music Trust, with additional resources provided by the RSCM

Cathedral Music Trust is delighted to be working in partnership with the Royal School of Church Music to recognise and develop excellence in choral music-making by church choirs, and to give them the opportunity to take their work further.

Choirs are invited to apply to Cathedral Music Trust for up to £10,000 for a specific, innovative or enriching project, lasting up to one year. There is a limited budget for this award, and we anticipate not being able to make awards to all choirs that apply. You can find further information about projects the Award could support here. Award holders will also receive one year’s group membership of RSCM and one year’s free access to RSCM’s Voice for Life digital training programme.

A choir is eligible for the Church Choir Award if it regularly performs cathedral-style choral repertoire in a liturgical context to a high standard. Read the full Eligibility Criteria.
