Such an inspiring week with our visitors from @TheSixteen, working with school groups in @theBWCAT @StGtG_CAT @theBKCAT @BPS_Trust @bcw_cat and our choirs in Bradford, Huddersfield and Leeds Cathedral, opportunities that help nurture the wonderful potential in all these children.

Before tonight's Mass our Cathedral Girls' Choir enjoyed some lovely coaching on Tallis' Videte Miraculum from @KimPorterMusic as part of our week working with singers from @TheSixteen. Here's a tiny clip of the result - beautiful singing from the girls in this wonderful piece.

Yesterday our Schools Singing Programme schools, choirs and Choral Directors had another inspiring day working alongside singers from @TheSixteen - our Organ Scholars seized the opportunity to get some extra conducting time in too, well done Rachel, Chris and Chris!

So lovely for the children we work with every week to hear, see and work with professional singers from one of the world's best choirs!

The Diocese of Westminster has joined the National Schools Singing Programme, an initiative designed to enhance music programmes for children educated in Catholic state schools.In his message, Cardinal Vincent said,‘I thank the Hamish Ogston Foundation for giving young people in the Diocese of Westminster the opportunity to participate in the National Schools Singing Programme.
