Leeds Trinity Cathedral Girls’ Choir to perform live on BBC Radio 4

The Leeds Trinity Cathedral Girls’ Choir will perform live on BBC Radio 4’s Daily Service tomorrow morning.

Twenty eight members of the choir, from schools across Leeds, will travel to St James and Emmanuel Church in Didsbury, near Manchester, for the live broadcast.

Lucy Haigh, Cathedral Choral Director at the Diocese of Leeds Music Department, said: “It’s very exciting for the choir to perform in a live broadcast at BBC Radio 4, which can be accessed all over the world. I’m looking forward to an entertaining morning and the girls are particularly excited about travelling to Manchester.”

The theme of the Daily Service is ‘Gifts of the Holy Spirit’ and will be led by the Rev Dr Paul Mathole. The Girls’ Choir will be accompanied by organist David Pipe, and Leeds Trinity University Broadcast Journalism student Alexandra Pereira will give a reading.

The programme can be heard live on BBC Radio 4 longwave from 9.45am.

The Leeds Trinity Cathedral Girls’ Choir was established as one of three choirs last year to celebrate Leeds Trinity University’s 50th anniversary year.

Professor Margaret A House, Vice-Chancellor at Leeds Trinity University, said: “We are very proud of our Catholic heritage and we are keen to create a lasting legacy for the University and local community, in our 50th anniversary. Our partnership with the Diocese enables us to engage young children across Yorkshire, reinforcing the faith foundation and values which still characterise Leeds Trinity University today.”

The Leeds Trinity Cathedral Children’s Choir will next perform at the Leeds Schools Concert on Sunday 2nd July at Leeds Cathedral.
