Favourite Carols from King's: The Choir of King's College Cambridge

John Suchet's Album of the Week, 8 December 2014.

Through its annual Christmas broadcasts, the Choir of King's College, Cambridge has become a centrepiece of the festive tradition for families around the world. Every carol in this selection has been featured in the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols throughout the years. 

Stand out moments include 'Once in Royal David s City', with the opening verse sung by treble Adam Banwell, 'In the Bleak Midwinter' and 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing'. 

The album offers the character of the choir as it is today, deeply rooted in tradition and sounding as fine as ever - polished, pure and very seasonal.

And it's the first collection of carols to be released on the Choir's own label, recorded in the superb acoustics of King's College Chapel.
