>There is excellent detail in Peter Kennerley's book The Building of 
Liverpool Cathedral - including photos of all the bells. ISBN 
0948789719 or 0948789727 (softback) What stands there today is quite 
different from the winning design.
The detail of the plans for the R.C. Cathedral - a vast Byzantine 
edifice is also compelling reading. It was the rivalry between the 
two groups of Christians that brought about two splendid, but very 
different buildings. The R.C. standing on the foundations of a 
building that would have competed in size with St. Peter's in Rome 
had it been built.
