The Choir of Bradford Cathedral holds regular ‘Safari Evensongs’, where they head to local churches to sing.
And on Sunday, February 25th at 3.30pm, the Girls Choir will head to St Michael and All Angel’s on Church Street, Haworth in the first of these services for 2024.
Revd Oli Preston, Rector of Haworth and Cross Roads, says: “We are very excited to welcome Bradford Cathedral Girls’ Choir to St Michael and All Angels’, Haworth Parish Church. As ‘The Bronte Church’ we have many people come to connect with the cultural heritage here, so it is wonderful to host Safari Evensong as another cultural highlight for our visitors and locals to engage with.
“Evensong is one of the jewels of the Anglican tradition – a spacious, beautiful, peaceful space to encounter the presence of God. We have memories of having a choir here, and would love to explore opportunities for regularly gathering people for choral singing here again. And all are welcome to come and hear to the girls sing”
Anthony Gray, Assistant Director of Music at Bradford Cathedral, says: “’We are delighted to be continuing our long running series of ‘Safari Evensongs’ into 2024. The girl choristers are hugely looking forward to visiting Haworth at the end of February, singing music by Philip Moore, Ed Jones and Thomas Ebdon.
“Our Safari Evensong events are both a great opportunity to showcase our fabulous choir in parishes around our Diocese, as well as being a brilliant learning opportunity for our young singers, who I know will love being part of this service in Haworth.”
