Where did RCM come from?
RCM stands for Resource Christian Music. Dennis and Nolene Prince originally compiled a number of new Praise & Worship songs for use in their rapidly growing new church the Christian Resource Centre. Nolene arranged the songs for their new keyboard players and they had many requests from other churches. Their first Volume (A) sold over 20,000 copies in Australia and is still in print.
What are the supplements and volumes?
Since Volume A, new songs were gathered - the best of the best - and about a dozen songs published twice a year into a Supplement. Music is stapled, A5 or A4 size. Volumes are wire-bound.
