Liverpool Cathedral is the largest cathedral and place of worship in England, built from 1901 to 1978 on St James’s Mount in Liverpool . It may be known as the Cathedral Church of Christ in Liverpool (which is documented in the Document of Consecration) or the Cathedral Church of the Risen Christ, Liverpool, being dedicated to Christ ‘in special remembrance of his most glorious Resurrection’. Liverpool Cathedral is the largest cathedral and religious building in Britain and the eighth largest church in the world.

 Liverpool Cathedral plays an important role or part in civic and community life within the city centre apart from serving its own congregation as a house of worship.

The cathedral supplies for a diverse selection of local services, ordinations and diocesan occasions as well as many national events. This requires a sound system which is flexible and easy to use.

The building is well over 10000m2 in size and has a reverberation time of over 8 seconds. Thus, the Wigwam installation team have got to design a system to produce clear, intelligent audio reproduction while being flexible in use and not producing any architectural problems.

As the services can be delivered in several sections of the building at any given time, a control system was designed to allow the house clergy simple and effective control of set loudspeaker and microphone configurations making use of simple remote panels at different locations all over the building.

The basis of the control system works on the latest DSP units by Yamaha and Allen & Heath. The cathedral boasts the largest Yamaha DME system in Europe and since the installation many of Yamaha’s top designers and product specialists have visited the building to view the working system.

Also, great caution was taken at every stage of the install to work around the cathedral’s daily routines and services.

All cable routes and mounting methods were carried out after constructive consultations with the architects and house maintenance departments.
