Music Awards

October 21st, 2009 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Music

Many congratulations to the girls who have just passed their Royal School of Church Music Dean’s and Bishop’s Awards.  The following were all successful in the ‘Dean’s Award’: Holly Macartney-Filgate; Freddie Bowden, Abi Logg, Mary-Ann Screech, and Penny Tilsley all passed with Merit,  whilst  Bethany Hulme-Teague, Amy Marks and Grace Waterhouse, passed with Distinction.   

The following girls were successful in the prestigious ‘Bishop’s Award, Natasha Routly:  Josie Kane and Heather Sampson both passed with Distinction.   The eleven girls were presented  with their distinctive green and purple ribbons by the Dean and Bishop at a special service held at Truro Cathedral.    Not only did the girls have to prepare up to four pieces of music to sing,  perform aural  and sight-singing tests,  but they had to undertake a rigorous viva-voce exam and had to answer questions on the Church’s calendar, liturgy, suitable music for the different services and seasons within the church, compare, contrast  and analyse anthems and discuss their musical  experience and contribution within the choir too – no mean feat!   Well done to them all.
