Organs – St Joseph’s Bradford

The Hopkins Organ

The Bradford Boys’ Choir are the choir in residence at St Joseph’s Church in Bradford. The church organ was manufactured in the late 19th century by Hopkins & Son of York. It is widely regarded as the finest organ in the city centre, benefiting from mechanical key action and a superb case from an earlier Anneessens instrument.

‘I am delighted to become a Patron of the National Schools Singing Programme. It is a truly groundbreaking initiative bringing the benefits and joys of singing and learning together to primary schools while also rapidly broadening the foundations of the UK’s world-leading choral tradition. As a composer who has always enjoyed writing music for young choirs to sing, I have witnessed at first hand the thrill of children learning to read music and exploring the potential of their voices in schools, churches and cathedrals.
