A different music: the Revd Richard Coles was ordained priest iLincoln Cathedral on Sunday. Before training for the priesthood, Richard Colewas half of The Communards, the 1980s pop duo with Jimmy Somerville (pictureabove top). Their cover of the Thelma Houston hit Dont Leave Me This Wayspent four weeks at Number One in the charts in 1986. Other songs includeReprise, an attack on Margaret Thatcher, and For a Friend, about someonwho had died of AIDS. The Communards broke up in 1989. Richard Coles did theology degree at Kings College, London, in the early 1990s and worked foRadio 3, presenting Nightwaves. He went to Mirfield to study for thpriesthood in 2003. He says his last venture into pop music was when the youtgroup persuaded him to don fishnet tights and sing a Dr Frankenfurter numbefrom The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I successfully terrifieeveryone, even me. Hes recently started playing the organ again (when itquiet and everyones gone home). Comparing his lifestyle now to 20 years agohe says he is struck by the similarities more than the differences: My nightare quieter and my mornings considerably more active, but you work long hoursyoure always performing, and people look at you in the street
