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

This CD was a great hit, it is a great ritual on Christmas Eve to listen to carols on Radio 4 while preparing the festive feast. with interruption you always miss part of the program but this year enjoyed the carols the whole of the festive season and hopefully next year too Thanks

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.

This is a lovely CD, with gorgeous carols and superb musical direction. However, I was misled by the advertising as it stated "2012" and I assumed it to be the Christmas "Carols from King's" broadcast on TV in December 2012. It is in fact a compilation from previous years. I have kept the CD as it is still amazing but I would have been happier if I had received what I thought I was ordering!
