CSCC Launch Call for Proposals for new anthems

As part of its ongoing commitment to fostering new repertoire for church choirs, the Cathedral Singers are launching a Call for Proposals, inviting composers to submit plans for anthems to fit into various seasons of the Church’s year.

It is hoped that this project will support exciting and interesting new music from talented composers. For more information, see the dedicated page here:
