Organs – St Anthony’s Beeston

The Forster & Andrews Organ

The St Maximilian Kolbe Children’s Choir is the choir in residence at St Anthony’s Church in Beeston and St Francis’ Church in Holbeck. The organ was originally built for Borthwick Church, Midlothian in 1893 by the renowned Hull firm of organ-builders, Forster and Andrews. Replacing a poor-quality electronic instrument, the organ was installed in the West Gallery by David Wood of Huddersfield in 2020. The organ fits well with the church’s neo-Gothic style, its pipes being beautifully painted and gilded in the manner of that period.

Transformational school singing in West Yorks - despite Covid-19. @thomas_leech describes our work and challenges cathedrals to open access to their musical treasures @RachelReevesMP @FabianLeedsNE @RichardBurgon @hilarybennmp @TracyBrabin @chiggi @FionaMaddocks @tes

#ICYMI: Where else is it still accepted that an elite opportunity is available to a boy, but not a girl? Or accessible primarily to the 7% of privately educated children? @thomas_leech reflects on cathedral #choirs role in #artseducation https://bit.ly/3iVMF9h

@katharineparton @Paul_McCreesh @Stantclayton @sbsjcc @DOLMusic In fact - we regard the schools work as the centre, and the after-school opportunities as the add-on. You have to prioritise the foundations...

Year 6 really enjoyed their first singing session with @thomas_leech from @DOLMusic. Different than usual but lots of fun! #welovestanthonysclayton @bcw_cat @csptsa @CathEdService

My voice is changing right now so I’m in this range where I can sing quite high or low, so I can either sing treble or tenor right now! When I sing it gives me more confidence in school and everywhere. The whole choir feels like a community and you get to meet lots of new people as well. My favourite pieces are some of the Glorias, I also like singing in other languages. 13 years old, Leeds Cathedral Senior Boys Choir ... See MoreSee Less

I feel happy because it just lets all your emotions out. I like singing. My favourite thing about choir is singing, and I’m really excited for the BBC broadcast. We’ve been rehearsing for it since September, since we came back from the holidays. If you feel nervous about singing imagine it’s only you in the room and you’re singing to yourself. When I joined I was really nervous, but my sister was in the choir (she’s in Seniors now) and she helped me to sing. 10 years old, Bradford Junior Choir ... See MoreSee Less
