Jacob's date with BBC Radio 4.

14-year-old Loretto Music Scholar, Jacob Slater has been recording the soprano solos from J S Bach’s St Matthew Passion with John Butt and the Dunedin Consort for a BBC Radio 4 play about the ‘Great Passion.’ 

We have yet to receive confirmation from then BBC as to exactly when this will be broadcast, however, it is likely to be on Good Friday or Easter Saturday. We will keep you posted!

This is an great accolade and achievement for Jacob, we do congratulate him and look forward to hearing his performance. 

Many will have heard Jacob perform in Chapel or at School concerts. You can also listen to  him perform 'Hear my Prayer' (Mendelssohn) at the Christmas Concert by clicking here
