St. Patrick’s Primary School Choir, who were named the BBC Junior School Choir of the Year in 2013, will feature today on Songs of Praise.

The performance was recorded at both Long Tower Primary School and Saint Patrick’s Church, Pennyburn last June.

According to choir director Ursula Cullen, they were chosen due to their success in the competition last year – where they wowed the judges at the final in Liverpool.

The programme will be broadcast on BBC1 at 5pm and will be presented by David Grant, who was one of the judging panel at the final of the Choir of the Year competition!

The programme takes a nostalgic look back at Sunday Schools and the hymns associated. St Patrick’s will perform two specially-chosen pieces – ‘Jesus Loves Me, This I Know’ and ‘Can You Hear Me?’
