Joint Evensong with the Choir of King's College - July 06 2017

Recorded on
Thursday, 6 July 2017

This week's webcast is taken from the choir's annual Joint Evensong with the Choir of King's College, performed this year in King's College Chapel. Music by Howells and Parry.

Founded in the fifteenth century, the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge is one of the most widely-known representatives of the British church music tradition and is directed by Stephen Cleobury. His work at King’s has brought him into fruitful relationships with many leading orchestras and soloists, among them the Academy of Ancient Music, the Philharmonia, Britten Sinfonia and the BBC Concert Orchestra. He complements and refreshes his work in Cambridge through the many other musical activities in which he engages. The college choir is most famous for singing A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, the Christmas Eve service that the BBC has broadcast since 1928.
