There will also be a sacred choir, choir of vulnerable adults, and a community choir - and producers are inviting people to get involved and sing in the community choir. Anyone interested should email

John's other work includes the music for The Suppliant Women, which got five star reviews when it was staged at Manchester Royal Exchange recently, and he will also be working at The Young Vic later this year.

Choreography for the show comes from Jo Blowers and Mary Prestidge.

Through the Wilderness is at Liverpool Cathedral on May 16-17. T ickets are free, but should be reserved in advance HERE.
