The Revised English Hymnal

The Revised English Hymnal is a completely new and updated edition of the English Hymnal. Like its predecessors, it aims to be 'a humble companion' to the Common Prayer of the Church, not only in England, but everywhere the English Hymnal tradition is loved and valued around the world; not only on Sundays and feasts but for every day of the year.

Voice for life

Voice for Life® Digital is a brand-new, enhanced version of the RSCM’s vocal training scheme for choristers and singers of all ages. Once set up, the system allows your choir members to progress with minimised input from the choir trainer. Supporting the development of your singers has never been easier!


Hymnpact!® is a subscription-based resource for primary schools and churches, providing hymns and songs that are appealing to children and adults alike. The music is suitable for use in school (in worship and curriculum settings) but are also appropriate for church congregations of all ages. Hymnpact bridges the gap between the hymns and songs commonly sung in schools and the range of hymns sung in church. We are doing this to bring schools and churches closer together.

Sunday by Sunday Plus

RSCM’s Sunday by Sunday Plus is the new online companion to our ever-popular magazine Sunday by Sunday. It is designed to help you plan music for services and rehearsals and manage your musicians.


The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) enables the flourishing of church music. We encourage and resource churches, musicians, and church communities of all kinds to ensure they have access to relevant support, training, and education resources to sustain them in the present. And we work to inspire the church musicians of the future.
