A York Yuletide: The Choir of York Minster

Drive Featured Album from Monday 21 December, after 6pm.

York Minster is one of England's greatest cathedrals, where music plays a key role.

On this rich Christmas collection, the Choir of York Minster celebrates the season of good will, combining their joyous repertoire, the grand sound of the organ, and the wonderful acoustic of their home.

Collected here is mostly 20th century and contemporary English music, including the four major carols by Herbert Howells, Vaughan Williams's extended Fantasia on Christmas Carols, and an hilarious new arrangement of Jingle Bells. New carols include the first two works commissioned by York Minster and given their first recording here.

This is choral music at its most authentic and inspiring, performed brilliantly and captured in glorious sound.
