The Choir of King's College, Cambridge signed exclusively for world management.
The Choir of King's College, Cambridge (Stephen Cleobury, Director of Music) is probably best known throughout the world for its annual Christmas service Nine Lessons & Carols, broadcast around the world by radio since 1928 and in later years as Carols from Kings on BBC TV. But King's is about much more than just Christmas.

The foundation stone of the Chapel of King's College was laid in 1446 by Henry VI and a choir has existed continuously since that time. Today the choir consists of up to eighteen boys, and the men of the choir are all undergraduates at King's studying a diverse range of subjects. The Choir sings evensong in the Chapel on a daily basis, and the sound of the Choir in King's College Chapel (one of Britain's most identifiable and spectacular buildings) is absolutely unique.

Outside of Cambridge the Choir has a busy touring and concert schedule and in recent years they have visited the USA, Canada, Denmark, South Africa, Germany, France and Belgium. Earlier this month the Choir gave two highly successful concerts in Paris and Brussels and this summer they travel to the Far East and Australia. Future plans include Japan and a return tour to the USA and Bermuda.

Over the years the Choir has had a distinguished recording history and is represented in the record catalogue by over 80 current releases. In fact the Choir was first recorded as long ago as 1927. Most recently its principal recording relationships have been with Decca and with EMI Records, for whom the Choir has just released John Rutter's Requiem. Future releases include Rachmaninov's Vespers and a new Christmas album.
