One of the highlights of singing mass at St Peter's Basilica was our cathedral organ scholar Anthony conducting the choir - Anthony joined the choir 11 years ago as a treble, and is now studying music at Huddersfield University. Donate to our tour fund: https://t.co/WFFxzSSV96

A great first day in Rome - pizza, Colosseum, and beautiful singing at Santa Maria Maggiore; we rehearsed in the most amazing chapel, then sang for the Vigil Mass of All Saints'.

We're back from Rome - an amazing trip for Bradford Catholic Youth Choir! We finished a busy schedule with an informal performance at the Palazzola last night, and a fully sung Mass this morning in the wonderful 13th Century chapel. Their excellent singing and behaviour were very warmly commented on everywhere we went. Thank you to the fabulous staff at Villa Palazzola for making us so welcome in the beautiful accommodation, and of course to our wonderful volunteer parent chaperones and staff who made this trip possible. ...
