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.

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. 'Making music allows us to give joyful praise to God, reminding us that all beauty comes from God and takes us to God. Singing builds team work and makes us attentive to each other. I am sure it will help our young people to know the beauty and joy that music gives to our everyday lives.’Find out more about the NSSP at www.nssp.org.uk/ ... See MoreSee Less
