This anniversary concert focuses on the splendour of the occasion of the Cathedral’s 50th anniversary. As well as Beethoven’s grand overture and the majestic Hymn of Praise by Mendelssohn the Society has commissioned a number of new works. These feature composers closely associated with the Society, the Cathedral and the City of Liverpool

To start the concert we have the premiere of a Fanfare by Kevin George Brown: his third composition for this building. Mike Stubbs and James Smith have both written for unaccompanied Cantata Choir; Robin Hartwell’s new Concertante is for Solo trumpeter plus the Cathedral’s Orchestra while Moseley has adapted an earlier work he wrote for the Cantata Choir to include the orchestra, especially for this occasion.

We are pleased, also, to have our first opportunity to perform works by James Luxton, the assistant Director of Music at the Metropolitan Cathedral and Dr Rob Howard, Deputy Head of the Music Faculty at St Edward’s College, the Cathedral’s Choir School.
