The very first recording by the Choir of St John's under George Guest. It was described by the Manchester Guardian as 'ecclesiastical pop' at the time.
This disc is available as part of the Decca Classics Box Set of George Guest's recordings with St John's. More information on the set is available here.
This week's webcast is our own recording of the Advent Carol Service, broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 on 1 December 2019.
The service includes a selection of readings, prayers and music for the season of Advent.
Our sister choir has recorded an album of music by William Mathias in collaboration with the Gentlemen of St John's
