Christmas Music from Leicester Cathedral

We are pleased to present highlights from our Advent and Christmas recordings, featuring Leicester Cathedral musicians and children from our DioSing! schools’ singing programme.

We hope that you enjoy our music. Like many people and places, Leicester Cathedral has been hit hard this year by the pandemic. If you would like to, and are able to, we would be very grateful if you could make a Christmas gift.
