Highly listenable and thoroughly satisfying. Some truly glorious music that stirs the spirit. A lovely, thoughtful collection of beautiful performances. If you appreciate good choral music this is one you want in your collection.

This new recording of 9 Lessons and Carols truly captures the spirit of the holiday season. I think what makes this new recording even more special is that it was recorded during the service that marked the 800th anniversary of Cambridge University. This is the perfect gift for a loved one and even for yourself.
