All Saints choir hit the right note!

The Diocese of Leeds gave birth yesterday to yet another choir! The newly formed choir of All Saints Catholic College in Huddersfield made their first public performance on the occasion of the installation of Fr. Ian Smith as Parish Priest of Huddersfield North by Bishop Roche.

After only three weeks of rehearsals the choir acquitted themselves very well, singing a wide range of music ranging from a haunting setting of the beautiful 'Anima Christi' text, through to a contemporary setting of the Gloria by Bob Hurd - 'Missa Ubi Caritas' which is notable for the syncopated rhythms provided by the bongos and tambourine, expertly played by the schools music staff!
