October 1st, 2007 - MP supports cathedral choirs


Frank Field, MP for Birkenhead recently published an article praising the work of music and choirs in Cathedrals in England, both Anglican and Catholic.

Describing Cathedral choirs as a 'national musical treasure chest' the MP makes the case for Cathedral Academies as a model for future choir schools. In his article Frank Field holds up the Diocese of Leeds music program as an example of thinking for the future outside of the traditional 'choir school' approach.

With 35 schools now working in partnership with the Diocese, and upwards of 1500 children singing across West Yorkshire on a weekly basis, the Dioceses of Leeds music program is now the largest Cathedral/ Diocesan music program in the UK.
