5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas tradition 16 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
These recordings of traditional carols are just what the doctor ordered for background music before and during Christmas festivities. Wonderful voices from Cambridge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essentialy Christmas 31 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
Perfectly tranquil and free from any scent of yuletide cheese! By far and away, this little sausage, a two CD set/download is a cracker! The ultimate score for your Christmas background music, or even if you need the cobwebs blasted away, this is the only music you'll need to stave away the madness of the annual musical turkeys - and Slade. For once the CD cover is actually correct - essential and the very best. Although Michael Buble's Chrismas album is rather good too!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Sound Quality 8 Dec 2012
By Happy
Verified Purchase
The choir probably sounded wonderful live, but the album sounds muffled, as if it was recorded by someone on site with amateur equipment. Kings College Choir is a favourite, but we removed this album from our Christmas playlist due to the poor quality sound. Disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Background music for Christmas dinner 1 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
I wanted a variety of classic and familiar carols for setting the mood for Christmas gatherings. I put this music on when I'm preparing and serving dinner, and it stays on throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely traditional carols 19 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
I chose this rating because i love the cd. The carols have not been messed about with and it sounds very traditional. This will certainly be played in our house on Christmas Day.
