Alexander Berry, Director of Music, says:
“You work hard, day-in and day-out, in the oldest building in Bradford. Some of the music you sing, has been sung by children in cathedral choirs for 500 years, and you are part of a living tradition that is found nowhere else in the world.
“As choristers you work hard, but I also want to pay tribute to your parents, your families, and all the people who enable you to get to the Cathedral. We couldn’t run the music here without you.
“And I’ll also like to thank all the cathedral staff and chaperones for all you do in supporting the choir. It’s wonderful to have such a fabulous team of staff here.
“Finally, some of you choristers will receive awards today, but some won’t, but that doesn’t mean you haven’t given a huge amount to this place over the last year. We greatly value what every single one of you brings to the Cathedral and to the choir.”
