Pierre Henry – The Liverpool Mass

Programme and poster design for Pierre Henry ‘The Liverpool Mass’. Commissioned by Bluecoat May 2017. The design and typography is adapted from the original record sleeve design from 1967. Held at Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ The King, the event marked the 50 year anniversary of Pierre Henry’s composition originally created for the Cathedral’s inauguration ceremony in 1967. This was the first time it had ever been performed in the Cathedral as it was not finished in time for the inauguration. Find out more about the 1967 inauguration ceremony here.
