This is the very best recording of Britten's "A Ceremony of Carols" - for its sensitivity, clear enunciation, superlative young tenors, and conducting. I much prefer it to the recording by the choir of Westminster Cathedral (1986). The most beautiful Christmas music ever written!
Not so well known Christmas carols on this recording by B Britton, but I have been looking for a CD of it for many years, I had it on a music cassette, which was actually a recording from Classic FM, the quality of the cassette was not really good, but the sound quality of the CD by the King's College Choir Cambridge is EXCELLENT which I listened to during the Christmas season, (I through the cassette version into the bin). The other works on the CD are also very good, however, they are not Christmas music, I can listen to them any time of the year, overall, a excellent recording.
