Choirs of the Diocese of Leeds


Choirs of the Diocese of Leeds


This new recording from Leeds Cathedral of favourite Catholic hymns reflects the history of the Catholic church in this country and will attract a large following of enthusiasts as it is an historic collection of Catholic hymns sung during the past 200 years; a volume 2 is also planned.

The Diocese of Leeds has the largest church music programme in the United Kingdom. In total it maintains 58 choirs comprising over 2500 children meeting weekly. There are 43 school choirs, four boys’ choirs, four girls’ choirs, three mixed children’s choirs, two youth choirs, a groundbreaking new choir school and a semi-professional adult choir.

The Cathedral Choirs have recorded many CDs and their 2013 CD of Duruflé’s Complete Choral Works has attracted widespread critical acclaim. In 2015 CD releases included Arvo Pärt’s choral works and organ discs by Andriessen and Elgar.

Last year, the Cathedral Junior Boys’ Choir recorded the soundtrack for a promo for the feature film The White King and Bradford Catholic Youth Choir recorded the choral soundtrack for ‘London Fields’, a major new film with Johnny Depp and Billy Bob Thornton.
