We were very sad to learn that David Moore, a much-loved, long-serving and devoted member of St Peter’s Church, died recently. Not only will David be remembered for his many years as organ-master at St Peter’s, but also for the time that he spent with visitors to St Peter’s sharing his memories of a young Paul McCartney.
David attended the Liverpool Institute at the same time as Paul, and was in the same class. More famously, David was in the group alongside Paul that auditioned to join the choir of Liverpool Cathedral. As David told us, “I auditioned for the choir at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral at the same time as Paul McCartney. We were asked to sing scales, and “Once in Royal David’s City.” I passed the audition … Paul didn’t!”
Our thanks go to David for sharing his memories, and our love, thoughts and prayers are with David’s wife, family and friends at this very sad time.
