The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge Directed by Stephen Cleobury Released 23 March 2015 DVD
Seasonal hymns and readings alongside choral favourites, including Allegri’s Miserere and the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah.
Featuring seasonal hymns and readings alongside choral favourites, including Allegri’s Miserere, the Lacrimosa from Mozart’s Requiem, the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah and Cesar Frank’s Panis Angelicus, Easter from King’s presents a contemplation of Christ’s death and resurrection. This world-famous choir is perhaps best-known for its Christmas broadcasts, but gives daily sung services in the beautiful surroundings of King’s College Chapel. Cameras are normally forbidden during services, so this DVD provides a rare opportunity to experience the choir engaged in its core activity, celebrating the most important festival of the Christian calendar. Broadcast originally at Easter 2014. 74 mins running time. A BBC Religion and Ethics Production for BBC TW
