A very busy term has included two BBC Radio 3 broadcasts, the National Schools Singing Programme Conference, and most importantly the wonderful work our Choral Directors and Keyboard Tutors do in schools across the Diocese.The choirs in Bradford, Huddersfield and Leeds have made a beautiful contribution to the liturgies of the past week - here are some photos from the Triduum at the Cathedral (Patrick Sice Photogprahy - more available on his website). ...
