May 20th, 2017 - New Youth Choir for Wakefield Sings Inaugural Mass

The Bishop Konstant Youth Choir led the liturgy at their first Mass last Sunday at St Austin’s Church, Wakefield. The choir, superbly led by Charlotte Kitson, sang with both skill and enthusiasm. They sang a wide variety of music, from the contemporary setting of ‘Be Thou my Vision’ by Bob Chilcott, to the joyful ‘Christus Vincit’ dating back to the 9th Century. The children were supported by members of the adult choir of St Austin’s Church. Members of the congregation were delighted with the music, with one visitor to the church from Canada emailing to say, ‘A wonderful sound of young people which brought tears to my eyes’.

The Choir started in March 2017 and includes boys and girls from Catholic Schools throughout the Wakefield area. More »
