September 14th, 2007 - Requiem Mass for Jane Tomlinson
Requiem Mass for Jane Tomlinson

Friday 14th September saw the City of Leeds bid farewell to Jane Tomlinson, the lady who raised both money and support for others despite suffering for incurable cancer herself.

The Funeral was a high profile occasion, being broadcast live on BBC News 24 and Sky News and BBC Radio Leeds. News bulletins throughout the day also carried music and images from the Mass. The Mass was also broadcast on the big screen in Millennium Square in Leeds, where over a 1000 people gathered to give thanks for Jane's life.

The music was led by the Cathedral boys' and adult choir. Much of the music was chosen by Jane herself as it had been sung/ played at her wedding. The choir led the congregation in the singing of hymns such as 'Faith of our Father,' as well as the Latin plainsong Requiem Mass. During communion the choir sang Colin Mawby's powerful full setting of the Ave Verum.
