Statement from The Priests
10.30pm - 27 December 2019
“Individually and collectively as The Priests we are privileged to be named among those whom HM The Queen has honoured in the New Year’s Honours list.
The gift of music and vocal training has been nurtured in each of us from an early age. Our unexpected journey over the past 11 years has been an epic one and has brought us to places we could only ever have dreamed about. We have met wonderful people of every creed and philosophy. We would like to thank all those who have supported us in this journey, not least our families, fellow clergy, religious and lay faithful of the parishes in which we have served and continue to serve. We thank our Bishops who have been of particular support, our tireless backup team who make everything possible, and those who nominated us for this honour. Without their support we would never have had the chance to share our love of music and its power for good with such a wide and diverse audience.
Thanks to people’s generous support The Priests Charitable Trust has been able to assist several charitable causes and, as long as we sing, will continue to do so”.
