With a CD of devotional music inspired by Leeds Cathedral’s close connection to English martyrs, the three choirs are lending their voices to the work of Aid to the Church in Need.

The recording is called “Catholic Collection II” — a sequel to the first production in this project. The CD includes a range of music from unison plainchant to congregational hymns to polyphonic chant.

Bishop Arthur Roche of Leeds said he is “delighted” to support the “wonderful recording of music by the choirs of Leeds Cathedral.”

He called it a “great joy” to know this recording will help the aid agency — “for in so many parts of the world today people are in need of the consoling love of Christ.”

The CD is being sold for £11.50 (about $16.74) and can be obtained by visiting www.acnuk.org.
