Salford Cathedral Singing Programme
Since 2022, we have been working with Miss Kathryn Bradley, Choral Director of Salford Singing Programme, that works across the Salford Diocese footprint to deliver singing lessons focused on liturgical songs and hymns and some secular music. Kathryn works with Years 4 & 6 predominantly and delivers a weekly lesson to both year groups.
The children enjoy the sessions which underpin the Music curriculum which hugely enhance the prayer life of the school through our worship to God. Children have developed a wider repertoire of songs and an appreciation of a range of music not accessed through other routes.
The children have performed the hymn, Laudato Si', inspired by Pope Francis' encyclical about our duty as stewards of the earth. This can be viewed here:
Our children took part in a special concert at St John's RC Church in Rochdale with the Salford Cathedral Choir. The concert provided an opportunity for the children to showcase their skills in a setting of great beauty and reverence. Parts of their performance can be seen here;
