Choristers Sing at Liverpool Cathedral

Wells Head Girl and Head Boy choristers, Erin and Ross, represented Wells Cathedral at the recent Diamond Fund Concert at Liverpool Cathedral.

Over 100 singers performed live at Liverpool Cathedral on Thursday 13th June, in the second concert of its kind since The Cathedral Choristers of Britain was formed in 2016. The concert was put on by Friends of Cathedral Music’s Diamond Fund for Choristers, in conjunction with Liverpool’s Anglican and Catholic cathedrals, to showcase Britain’s 1,000-year-old choral tradition, bringing together boy and girl choristers from cathedrals and other foundations across the UK.

The Diamond Fund for Choristers, launched in 2016 at a concert at St Paul’s Cathedral featuring The Cathedral Choristers of Britain, raises funds to support choristers and cathedral music departments in need, and has since provided £140,000 worth of grants to 24 choral foundations. These provide voice and instrument tuition, outreach and recruitment opportunities, and help for choristers whose families are least able to cope with the costs of their education.

Erin and Lloyd performed much loved favourites, Handel’s Zadok the Priest, Allegri’s Miserere, Howard Goodall’s Psalm 23 (The Vicar of Dibley theme tune) and Parry’s I Was Glad, as well as works by Fauré, Vaughan Williams, Tavener and The Beatles, along with a new work by Richard Shephard specially commissioned for the concert.
