Professor Ian Tracey has had a life long association with Liverpool Cathedral and its music and, with his two illustrious predecessors, continues the tradition of an almost apostolic succession. He studied organ with Lewis Rust and then with his immediate precursor Noel Rawsthorne. Studies at Trinity College, London, culminated in Fellowship, after which, scholarship grants enabled him to continue his studies in Paris with both Andre Isoir and Jean Langlais.

In 1980 he became the youngest Cathedral Organist in the Country, and after 27 years service in 2007, the Dean and Chapter created the post of ‘Organist Titulaire’, allowing him the freedom to devote more time to playing, lecturing, recording and writing. Since his appointment in 1980, he has played most of the major venues in this country, and an increasing number in Europe; very much in demand in the U.S.A., he has made twenty three extensive tours, playing in all the major Cities and in 1999 and 2003 undertook major tours of Southern Australia, recitaling, examining and teaching. The past two seasons have included concerts in New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Bermuda, Paris, Holland, Germany, Jersey and Spain.

After a three year gap it is with great pleasure we welcome Professor Tracey back to St. James Road for his 21st Recital on ‘The Little Giant’
