Liverpool Cathedral’ has a world class reputation for musical excellence. Our Cathedral Choir leads music at the Eucharist and Evensong services during term time. The Cathedral Choir also sings at major services as well as touring the world. Please note that during the current pandemic, services and service music are likely to be changed at short notice depending upon which choristers are available.
