Easter at King's
“Easter at King's goes from strength to multi-faceted strength”
BBC Music Magazine (March 2013)
Easter at King's was started in 2004 and has grown into an enormously popular series of concerts and services for the Easter period. Some of the concerts and services are broadcast on BBC Radio 3. A service recorded for television, 'Easter from King's', is broadcast by BBC2 over the Easter period.
The 2014 programme is yet to be announced.
You can still download the 2013 programme to see what happened at the last festival. Highlights included two performances of Bach's St Matthew Passion with countertenor Andreas Scholl:
"Standing out amid countless seasonal performances of Bach’s Passions, the St Matthew Passion that opened this year’s Easter at King’s festival in Cambridge boasted some unbeatable attributes. Most eye-catchingly, of course, there was King’s College Chapel as backdrop. But with its peerless choir providing the musical backbone, a mostly outstanding team of soloists was able to shine under the baton of Stephen Cleobury."
