Few performances can match that of the Choir of King’s College Cambridge for technical brilliance and sheer musicianship, and the album ‘A Ceremony of Carols’ is no different. This album has also been recorded in the Chapel at King’s College, Cambridge – possibly the most perfect acoustic ever built for choral music.

‘A Ceremony of Carols’, for boys choir accompanied by harp, has firmly established itself as a Christmastide favourite across an increasing number of countries. Its radiant harmonies, brilliant melodies and the scintillating counterpoint between voices and harp are enchanting and memorable. ‘A Boy was Born’ is a work of early genius, remarkably assured and original, which dates from 1932 when Britten was just 19 years old. Other Christmas favourites are also included, such as ‘The Holly And The Ivy’ and ‘The Shepherd’s Carol’.
