At the 11.00am Mass on Sunday 28th February, the choir and congregation were very pleased to welcome two more young people as choristers in our ever-growing choir. Emma has joined the sopranos whilst Gabriel is a very useful addition to the tenor section. They were formally admitted by Fr Jonathan and presented with their Royal School of Church Music awards in a short ceremony after the sermon. Later, a special post-communion anthem was sung in celebration.
This now brings the number of young choristers admitted in the last year up to seven and we would be very happy to hear from any more young people in the Belper area who may be interested in joining the choir (or for that matter are interested in playing the organ!) as Elin, our Director of Music, strives to keep traditional church music alive and well in our parish.
