Favourite Carols from King’s

The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge Douglas Tang, Tom Etheridge & Parker Ramsay organ Directed by Stephen Cleobury Released 3 November 2014 CD/SACD hybrid

‘Favourite Carols from King’s’ is a collection of the most popular carols featured in A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols over the years. Highlights include ‘Once in Royal David’s City’, with the opening verse sung by treble Adam Banwell, ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’, solo performed by bass Hugo Herman-Wilson and ‘Hark! the herald angels sing’. It provides at once a survey of the King’s Christmas tradition and a snapshot of the choir as it is today. Recording of the Month – Friends of Cathedral Music **** – BBC Music Magazine
