The Steel City Choristers will sing at this year’s Trinity Sunday services, at 10:30am and 3:30pm, with the morning service also live-streamed online
Bradford Cathedral will welcome Sheffield’s Steel City Choristers as their next visiting choir. They will lead the music at the Cathedral’s Trinity Sunday services on Sunday 4th June: the 10:30am Choral Eucharist (which will also be streamed live) and the 3:30pm Choral Evensong. All are welcome to attend.
Highlights of the music programme include Charles Villiers Stanford’s Mass setting in C and F; and Orlando Gibbons’ Almighty and Everlasting God at the Choral Eucharist; and at Choral Evensong the Kenneth Leighton responses; Basil Harwood’s Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in Ab; and Charles Wood’s O Thou, The Central Orb.
Eleanor Jarvis, the Choir’s Director of Music, says:
“It’ll be a really lovely experience, and you’re going to hear a group of people who really, really love singing, and are passionate about the music that they sing, and singing together as a choir.”
Kate Caroe, the Choir’s Chair of Trustees and junior choristers lead, says:
“Choral services offer an inclusive and contemplative space for people. Even if people wouldn’t normally go to church, they can always come to the cathedral as it belongs to the whole city. A choral service – where the music forms the main part of the service – is a place where people can get a bit of peace and quiet and time to reflect. Nothing’s required of them. I think it’s a lovely space to be in, where everybody can sit with their own thoughts and prayers, and there’s no expectations: they can just enjoy the gift that music is.”
All are welcome to come along to the Trinity Sunday services at Bradford Cathedral, at 10:30am and 3:30pm on Sunday 4th June. The 10:30am Choral Eucharist will also be streamed live on the Bradford Cathedral YouTube channel and Facebook page.
