 Must have for King's lovers January 7, 2014 By M. Drake (South Beach, OR) See All My Reviews "We have several Christmas recordings for King's College, but this is the only one that includes both the Lessons and the Carols. And it's the only one we've found with Sir Philip conducting. The recording quality is crisp and clean, with some lovely descants and excellent choral balance. If you're a fan of King's Christmas music, this is one you definitely want to own." Report Abuse
