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.
