Notes & Reviews:

This DVD offers, for the first time, a sumptuous experience of the college's annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols.

This DVD offers for the first time ever a sumptuous surround-sound experience of the college's annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, filmed in December 2000. Stephen Cleobury's choice of music for the service struck a careful balance between carols traditional and modern, rare and popular. This DVD release also includes a fascinating and rare black and white film of the 1954 service, effortlessly directed by Boris Ord.

"...spectacularly impressive surround sound... As John Steane remarks, the musical standards are as ever extremely high; but part of the King's tradition and character is that extraordinary acoustic, which can nevertheless lend ordinary choral voices a subtly celestial, stained-glass quality. The stereo soundtrack captures it as well as any CD; but surround-sound gives you a far greater feeling that it's actually around you, more immediate than even the excellent widescreen image." - Gramophone
