Call for Scores opens Monday 21 September
With LFCCM 2020 postponed until May 2021, Call for Scores submissions from 2019 will now be performed in 2021 instead of 2020. Since LFCCM 2021 includes Ascension Day and Ascension Sunday, Call for Scores this year is smaller in scope and focuses solely on anthems and motets appropriate for Ascensiontide.
- Submissions are open from Monday 21 September to Friday 30 October
- Personal submissions only – no Youth or Commercial submissions this year
- Submissions must be directly relevant to Ascensiontide and are limited to two per composer
- Review the updated guidelines for Call for Scores
LFCCM @ Home: Tuesday 12 May – Sunday 17 May
In lieu of live performances this year, recorded performances from the Festival’s archives were streamed online as part of a mini “virtual” Festival. Additionally, BBC Radio 3 re-broadcast Choral Evensong from LFCCM 2011 on Wednesday 13 May.

LFCCM 2019’s nine-day programme included concerts and recitals in London, outreach events in Oxford, five new commissions for choral evensong, and premiere performances in services across London of new music submitted to our Call for Scores project by composers around the world.
