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.

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://justgiving.com/campaign/bcycrometour
