LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
The death has been announced of Sue Symons, wife of Christopher Symons, the first Master of Music at the Metropolitan Cathedral (1960-66). Sue died on 16 March, aged 79, only days after moving into a care home in Somerset, together with Christopher who is now in his nineties.
Sue was an artist, and she worked in various media. She had created several sets of woven and painted panels, mainly based on Bible events, and her diptychs on the life and miracles of Jesus are on permanent display at Bath Abbey (see https://www.bathabbey.org/bath-abbey-diptychs-the-life-and-miracles-of-jesus/ ).
She published a book illustrating her set of 40 panels based on the seven days of creation, ‘Creation: a Celebration’ a few years ago. The actual panels were also exhibited at Bath Abbey.
