The concert programme had a number of King's connections, with music by former chorister Orlando Gibbons, Kingswoman and Master of the Queen's Music, Judith Weir, and Fellow in Composition at King's, Richard Causton. Commissions for King's written by Nicholas Maw and Herbert Howells were also performed as part of a varied programme in front of a large and appreciative audience.

The recording, which is available as a webcast until Friday 23 October 2015, is introduced by MPR presenter Michael Barone, who hosts American broadcasts of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. Listen to the webcast here.
