5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Tradition par excellence 11 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Festival of Carols is one of the great British traditions that go back for some 90 years, and this recording by the BBC is one of the very best. Just lstening to the lone voice of the choir boy singing the first verse of Once in Royal David's City immediately transports one into Kings and away from the hurly burly of preparations for Christmas. This recording with its mixture of the traditionaland more modern music is aesthetically and technically brilliant, it brings home the true meaning of Christmas and is a delight to the ear as it signals the beginning of another Christmas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nine lessons and carols review 10 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After considering that this is a live recording,one can understand that the very slight loss of quality is actually deliberate; the recording reproduces a beautiful carol service,and faithfully recreates the atmosphere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lessons for sharing! 20 Feb 2011
By AnnaO
Format:Audio CD
Christmas in the 21st century has really lost it's meaning with all the media and hype to spend, spend, spend. If you truly want to celebrate this special season, sit back and contemplate the meaning of Advent through the 9 readings and Carols. Really enjoyed this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Glory of Christmas, King's College Cambridge 15 Dec 2011
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In this 2 CD live recording form 2009 we are treated to being present in the King's College Chapel, Cambridge for the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. It begins with a processional (Once in Royal David's City) and the ambience of the Chapel has never been captured better. Stephen Cleobury has trained the choir and conducts the music with Peter Stevens at the organ. The opening prayer is given by an adult male priest in a ringing accent that is in and of itself musical! The remainder of the Festival includes mostly carols less well known and that is another reason to add this to your Christmas library of recordings. The sing is magnificent, the acoustic is breathtaking, and the sense of the live 'performance' transports us to England for the duration. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, December 11
