At the end of the concert Captain Ian McNaught paid tribute to the QE2 and in particular the part played by Liverpool in the design. To the strains of Auld Lang Syne the Welsh Guards band left the Cathedral to the applause of the invited guests.

Imagine if they had marched out with God Save The Queen at the very end
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

That final piece is called Close of Day and meshes Auld Lang Syne and the Last Post together. Brilliant.
