Music

We want to reach out, to touch people, to change them, to bring them close to God, to leave them thirsting for more and wanting to come back again and again.








Music is a Gift from God. It is a universal language. Music can go beyond mere words; it is a way for us to communicate with God, and for Him to talk to us.

The English choral tradition in its sheer excellence and beauty is the envy of the whole world, and those involved in Cathedral Choirs are privileged to be part of the daily offering of worship maintained in every Anglican Cathedral in the country. Since the Reformation, it has been the duty of every Cathedral to offer worship of the highest order every day on behalf of the souls of the land.

Encouraging children to use their singing voices as part of their everday lives.


In an age where the nation seems constantly to be in pursuit of the lowest common denominator, Cathedrals still strive for perfection and the offering to God only of the very best. The Choristers are encouraged to adopt this perspective, as at Liverpool Cathedral nothing short of the very best is good enough in all things musical, in appearance, in attitudes and in behaviour.

This kind of observance from a very early age, cultivates in the boys and girls a mature outlook on life, and a confidence far in excess of their years. They are also trained to behave as professional musicians. The Choristers are engaged in an adult activity in which they are solely and constantly measured by adult standards and values.
