Our coronavirus response on BBC Radio 4

On Sunday 3 May at 7.10am the BBC Radio 4 Sunday programme featured the work of our singing programme, looking at how we’ve moved our programme of 18 after-school choirs online and continued our work with schools through daily YouTube singing sessions led by our Choral Directors. We heard how staff are putting new digital and presentational skills to use, and how valuable the children we’re working with find the continuing rehearsals.

Thanks to funding from The @HamishOgstonFdn, @DOLMusic is delighted to announce that it is now expanding its award-winning Schools Singing Programme across Yorkshire and replicating it in every Catholic diocese in the UK to create the National Schools Singing Programme.

Alleluia, alleluia!
A very Happy Easter to all our wonderful young singers, our staff and supporters - 'never tiring be our choiring!'
The Easter hymn, Battle is o'er, hell's armies flee, sung by Bradford Catholic Youth Choir

A year since our first online rehearsal with the Cathedral Girls' Choir...we're back in schools but our choirs are still online. Here's some medieval raucousness for yesterday's solemnity of the Annunciation, an archive recording of our Bradford choirs.

The NSSP initiative takes inspiration from the model developed by the Diocese of Leeds in 2003. It uses the existing infrastructure of Catholic state schools and offers additional funds to support world-class inclusive music programmes. The funds help engage diverse communities which have often been an afterthought for choral and church music. Find out more about Diocese of Leeds Music at dioceseofleedsmusic.org.uk ...
