Noel Rawsthorne Biography (Wikipedia)

Noel Rawsthorne (born 24 December 1929) is a British organist and composer, who was a pupil of Fernando Germani in Italy and Harold Dawber at the Royal Manchester College. He became Organist of Liverpool Cathedral from 1955 to 1980. While there, he composed many original choral works, such as the Festive Eucharist (1978) which is still sung regularly by churches across the Anglican Diocese of Liverpool. Until 1993, Rawsthorne was Senior Lecturer in Music at (formerly) S. Katharine's College, Liverpool (now Liverpool Hope University).

He also received an honorary doctorate in music from the University of Liverpool and his work with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra included supervision of the refurbishment of the Rushworth and Dreaper organ in the Philharmonic Hall and he has sustained substantial friendships, personal and professional, with successive Maistros of the 'Phil'.

He mentored (now Professor) Ian Tracey, who succeeded him as Musical Director of the Cathedral in 1980.
