Advanced Hymn Playing

St Giles Cripplegate Church, Barbican, London EC2Y 8DA

This class, repeated by popular demand from last year, is for those seeking more ways of inspiring the congregation and for those preparing CRCO hymn playing (please note that new hymns have been set from July 2020 onwards). Anne Marsden Thomas, whose The Organist's Hymn Book has become a standard work on the topic, shows you how to adapt the notes, the registration and the texture, and how to extend the hymn after the singing has finished. 

What to prepare
Please prepare to play any two hymns. Please provide 8 photocopies of your hymns unless they are in the hymnbook Common Praise.

Fee: RCO members (player) £66; Non members (player) £77. Observer places at £24 and £27 respectively will become available once four player places have been booked.
