I love love love this CD! The King's College Choir of Cambridge is the best choir I've ever heard, & I love the more obscure carols that I don't hear enough of (even on public radio). Sir David is the best conductor & arranger the Choir ever had. My favorite selections on this CD are Personent Hodie & A Child Is Born in Bethlehem. -- Claire Dixon, King's College Choir fan
