Anthology of Sacred Music by Women Composers


Judith Weir CBE, British composer and the first female Master of the Queen's Music, whose work 'Leaf by Leaf Christ Knows' is included within Volume 1 of our anthology - SATB Anthems -  with Louise Stewart, Director of Multitude of Voyces CIC.



Women's Sacred Music is hugely underrepresented within the Anglican liturgy. We are addressing this underrepresentation by publishing an Anthology in three initial volumes - SATB Anthems; Upper Voices Anthems; Liturgical Works - 


Multitude of Voyces C.I.C. has been supporting women's sacred music compositions for several years and our anthology includes several commissions as well as selected historical works, recommended works by established composers and submissions by emerging composers. 


Our project has the blessing and direct support and involvement of several high-profile composers including Judith Bingham, Judith Weir, Cecilia McDowall and

Joanna Forbes L'Estrange. 


Each volume spans several centuries of women's sacred music composition and each includes established historical and living composers from several countries, and emerging young British composers including Joanna Ward and Alison Willis. 


  • SATB Anthems - is due to be published in the early autumn 2019. 
  • Upper Voices Anthems - is due to be published in mid-autumn 2019.
  • Liturgical Works - is due to be published in late-autumn 2019. 


Choral sets of the each volume can be pre-ordered within the UK at a special 'earlybird' price of £13 per book (plus p&p) price thereafter £14.99 per book plus p&p.
