February 28th, 2008 - Bradford Youth Choir on BBC Radio 4
Bradford Youth Choir on BBC Radio 4

The Bradford Youth Choir today broadcast the Daily Service live on BBC Radio 4 LW. The BBC's longest running programme , the Daily Service is transmitted live each day from Emmanuel Church in Didsbury. The service is usually led by a professional choir, but occasionally choirs are invited to lead the music, so it was a great privilege for 50 youngsters from Bradford to be able to use their musical talents to an listenership of around 200,000 people.

The Bradford Youth Choir is part of the Diocese of Leeds singing programme: the largest catholic singing programme in the UK. Drawn from Catholic schools across Bradford and Keighley, the young singers sing both in and out of school under the direction of Diocese of Leeds musicians Christopher Johns, Charlotte Kitson and Christopher McElroy.

The broadcast can be listened to for the next seven days on the BBC's 'listen back' feature. Click here to listen (Thursday 28th February, Persistent Prayer)
