Historically, music has played an important part in the life of the Catholic Church, and since 1958 in the metropolitan cathedral, when a choir of men’s voices was formed by Canon Edward Murphy, to sing in the Crypt. In 1960 a boys’ choir was established under the direction of Christopher Symons and amalgamated with the men’s choir. Since then, music has been at the heart of the worship in the metropolitan cathedral.

This is a wonderful disc of traditional Christmas carols, recorded in the wonderful acoustic of Liverpool's Metroplitan Cathedral.
