Carols from King's 2014 is released on DVD
King's College Choir has just released its latest DVD of Christmas music.
This DVD includes the full 2014 service as broadcast by the BBC, and an hour-long documentary detailing the history of this central component of the British Christmas tradition.
Enjoyed in millions of homes each Christmas eve, Carols from King’s is an enchanting hour and a half of choral worship, beginning with a lone chorister singing Once in Royal David’s City and concluding with the triumphant Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.
This special edition includes 60 Years of Carols from King’s, a BBC documentary narrated by Juliet Stevenson, which charts the history of the service since 1954. The film gives an insight into the tradition of selecting the soloists for Once in Royal David’s City, what goes on behind the scenes, what life is like for a chorister in the Choir, and the impact these experiences have on generations of choristers.
You can buy this release from The Shop at King's, where proceeds will help fund the Chapel and Choir.
