Notes & Reviews:

The Choir of King's College, Cambridge, is one of the world's most beloved choral groups. Each Christmas Eve millions across the globe tune in to watch the choir's Service of Lessons and Carols. This Christmas reissue includes traditional songs of the Anglican choral tradition alongside German, French, Dutch, Polish, and Russian carols of festive cheer and sweet contemplation.

MusicWeb International, November 2012
This re-issue is a great document of King's College in the early 1990s and the selection can hardly be faulted. Certainly worth its modest cost; it gave me great enjoyment...A splendid selection from the world famous choir, which will give much pleasure.
