On the weekend of the 15th and 16th April, we welcome the Harsnett Choir to Bradford Cathedral as the second of our visiting choirs for 2023.
We spoke to the choir’s Visit Secretary Deborah Bunn who, alongside her husband Peter, used to sing in a church in Surrey for many years. Deborah picks up the story about she got involved with the Harsnett Choir from there.
“It was during a period between two Directors of Music that a good friend of ours and the Director of Music of Harsnett – Ed Sutton – came to support the choir on a monthly basis to help us keep going.
“Over coffee after a service one Sunday morning he asked if we were doing anything the weekend after, as he was short of a tenor and a soprano to sing at Peterborough Cathedral. So that was how it all began and it’s now seven years on. We enjoy it very much indeed!”
