February 22nd, 2008 - Redefining Outreach
Redefining Outreach

Click here to read an article about the outreach singing programme here in the Diocese of Leeds. The article is taken from Church Music Quarterly, the magazine of the Royal School of Church Music.

With a readership of 80,000 worldwide, CMQ is an influential periodical illustrating the happenings of the church music world. Each issue offers a wide range of articles and interviews by distinguished musicians, theologians and scholars, providing expert advice, information and inspiration for readers.

Redefining Outreach, written by Benjamin Saunders, Director of Music for the Diocese of Leeds, illustrates how the Diocese of Leeds has broken new ground in its diocesan singing programme. Unlike the traditional Anglican Cathedral model, here in the Diocese of Leeds we consider all of our singing schools to be choir schools in their own right - each receiving training from high calibre Cathedral musicians.
