I am delighted to support this wonderful recording of music by the Choirs of Leeds Cathedral, under the Director of Music, Benjamin Saunders. Below the altar in our Cathedral, we have the relics of two of the English Martyrs, who gave their lives for the Faith during the 16th Century.
We are closely linked to the suffering Church through these two witnesses to the Truth, Blessed Peter Snow and Blessed Ralph Grimston, who were martyred in Yorkshire during penal times. Therefore it is a great joy that this recording will help the Catholic Charity, Aid to the Church in Need, in their work for those who are persecuted, oppressed or in pastoral need.
For in so many parts of the world today people are in need of the consoling love of Christ and the Resurrection hope that He offers us. I pray that this recording which is a celebration of Gods love will inspire all listeners in faith, hope and charity. May Our Lady, St Anne and all the martyrs encourage and strengthen us all.
The story of St Annes Cathedral begins in 1786 when a Dominican priest, Fr Albert Underhill, moved the long established Roundhay Mission to premises in the centre of Leeds. In the autumn of that year, some rooms were obtained in a building off Briggate to house the mission, and so the owns first Catholic place of worship since the Reformation came into existence.
