Product Description

Product Description

With a TV and radio audience of millions, the annual broadcast of carols from King s College, Cambridge is an essential Christmas tradition for families all over the world. The debut album from the choir s own label features a specially recorded performance of their glorious 'Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols', and includes many of the most well-known Christmas carols as well as new commissions from some of today s most popular composers.

Review

Those of us invited to the glorious chapel for a special unwrapping of All Bells in Paradise heard vintage Rutter: an instantly likable melody supported by comforting mulled wine and mince pie harmony. It's sure to be a favourite with choirs up and down the country for many Christmases to come. --The Observer

The King s College Choir defines Christmas musically ... the level of achievement reached in these live performances is enviable. --BBC Music Magazine Christmas Issue 2012

4.0 out of 5 stars A rewarding experience 28 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I loved the choice of music and the delicate singing. New carols are always a challenge, and this time they proved to be an enjoyable challenge. On Christmas eve we as a German audience were treated to the broadcast on BBC Entertainment of the 2010 service of lessons and carols from King's College, a thoroughly magnificent programme. This recording will serve to remind my family of the Christmas Eve broadcast.
