The brand new album is the first recording of Christmas carols by St Paul's Cathedral Choir in more than a decade - and it has been worth the wait. Andrew Carwood - Director of Music at St Paul's Cathedral says: "We have a whole array of carols - some very well known, some less well known - music that will speak to everyone directly. This is music for Christmas, and you can't help but love the Christmas season and the music associated with it."
