The RSCM Millennium Youth Choir is an exciting chamber choir, founded in 2000 at the suggestion of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
“The RSCM does fantastic work in encouraging young singers all over the world. The vibrancy and commitment of the young voices of the Millennium Youth Choir shows that Church Music is not only alive and well, but flourishing!” Malcolm Archer, Director of Chapel Music at Winchester College, formerly Director of Music at St Paul’s Cathedral, London

New CD: The Heart's Voice, released 4 April 2013
The RSCM Millennium Youth Choir's third CD is entitled The Heart's Voice and includes a wonderful selection of music by contemporary church music composers associated with the RSCM, conducted by David Ogden accompanied by organist Daniel Moult.
The main work is James Whitbourn's setting of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, 'The Canticles of Mary and Simeon' scored for choir, organ and solo viola, which the choir commissioned and premiered in 2011. It also includes anthems by Thomas Hewitt Jones, Malcolm Archer, Philip Moore, David Ogden, John Rutter and the young composer Owain Park. Owain's piece, Let Thine Heart Keep Thy Commandments was runner-up in a recent composition competition run by the Kings James Bible Trust and the RSCM.
The winning work from the same competition, Christopher Totney's The Mystery of Christ, is also included on the CD. The choir's organist Daniel Moult contributes a recording of an astonishingly virtuosic work by Iain Farrington, 'Livewire'. The CD was recorded in the chapel of Tonbridge School.
