On Saturday 14 December the Cathedral Boys’ and Junior Girls’ Choirs will be joined by over fifty children from schools participating in DioSing! to record a CD of Leicestershire’s ten favourite Christmas Carols, accompanied by Wigston Brass Ensemble, with Simon Headley on the organ.

The same children, trained by Cathedral Choral Directors Katy Dent and Emma Trounson and Director of Music Chris Johns, will be broadcasting the same carols from the Grand Hall of St Martins House as part of BBC Radio Leicester’s ‘Sing Christmas’ programme on 23 December at 7.00pm.

If you’re short of ideas for Christmas presents (or, indeed, even if you’re not!) why not get this souvenir of the work that the Cathedral Music Department is doing in schools? We expect that CDs ordered by Tuesday 17 December will be ready for collection before Christmas. They cost £8 each and all proceeds will go towards the continuing work of DioSing!.

So why not send Julie Tyler an email (julie.tyler@leccofe.org), or even pop a cheque (payable to ‘Leicester Cathedral’) in the post (St Martins House, 7 Peacock Lane, Leicester LE1 5PZ) now, so you don’t forget?
