Kings College Choir

Christmas is three months away, but here I am posting about Christmas music. I discovered The Cambridge Kings College Choir three or four years ago when a friend gave me their "O Come All Ye Faithful" CD as a gift. I highly recommend this CD, it truly adds to the peace of the Christmas season, or anytime.

Here is a short description and history of the Choir, from their official website.

"The Choir owes its existence to King Henry VI, who envisaged the daily singing of services in his magnificent chapel. This remains the Choir's raison d'ĂȘtre, and is an important part of the lives of its 16 choristers, who are educated on generous scholarships at King's College School, and the 14 choral scholars and two organ scholars, who study a variety of subjects in the College."
