The Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King, under its music director Keith Orrell, has a thriving music tradition, and the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral Choir plays an important role in the cathedral and the city. The choristers are educated at the Cathedral Choir Schools—St. Edward’s College and Runnymede St. Edward’s (Junior) School. The Gentlemen of the Choir comprise both lay clerks and choral scholars from local higher education establishments. The Choir’s repertoire includes music of all periods, reflecting the great heritage of Roman Catholic and Anglican Church music as well as that of many other traditions. It has made a number of recordings and has toured Europe and North America.
