A collection of traditional and contemporary Christmas carols performed and recorded live at King's College Cambridge. These twelve carols are taken from the two Christmas services at King's in December 2019: Carols from King's, the popular television broadcast, and the cherished Christmas Eve service 'A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols'. Included in the collection are favourite congregational hymns such as 'Hark! the herald-angels sing' and 'Once in royal David's city', ending with the spine-tingling descants that King's is known for at Christmas.

Also included is the premiere performance of the commissioned carol 'The Angel Gabriel' by composer Philip Moore, and carols by Kenneth Leighton, Elizabeth Maconchy and Andrew Carter. The Choir is conducted by the new Director of Music, Daniel Hyde, and this recording takes excerpts from his first Christmas in one of the musical world's most high-profile roles.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
