Founded in 1840, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir has always been central to the life of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. Its repertoire covers all periods and styles from Bach to newly commissioned works, with full symphony orchestra and a cappella, and it also plays a leading rôle in the famous Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Spirit of Christmas Carol Concerts. As well as performing in many British concert venues, the choir has appeared in the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, including a televised performance of Vaughan Williams’s A Sea Symphony in 2005. The choir has toured to Spain, France, Germany and the Netherlands. Among the choir’s many recordings are Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius, Vaughan Williams’s A Sea Symphony and Serenade to Music and Howells’ Hymnus Paradisi with Vernon Handley, Finzi’s Intimations of Immortality with Richard Hickox, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with Sir Charles Mackerras, Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Oratorio with Carl Davis, and Shostakovich’s Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3 with Vasily Petrenko.
