As part of this year's celebration of the centenary of Benjamin Britten's birth, the Choir of King's College, Cambridge under conductor Stephen Cleobury presents Britten's enchanting choral masterpiece Saint Nicolas, coupled with the Hymn to St. Cecilia and Rejoice in the Lamb. The recording features soloist Andrew Kennedy, a former choral scholar at King's College, Cambridge, the renowned Britten Sinfonia, Sawston Village College Choir and Cambridge University Musical Society. The Choir of King's College, Cambridge is one of the world's foremost choirs and unquestionably among the most widely heard. It owes it's existence to King Henry VI, who envisaged the daily singing of services in his magnificent chapel. The choir has also been a breeding ground for numerous professional singers, including James Gilchrist and Christopher Purves.

We all remember moving performances of the past but this is definitive.
Superbly perfomed by singers and instrumentalists in a sympathetic acoustic.
The audi production is top quality.
Attractively packed as in two disc versions, one is standard stereo and the other SACD high density multichannels for audiophiles with this player; at a good price for the bundle.
