Christmas Presence: The King's Singers
The King's Singers; National Youth Choir of Great Britain
The essence of The King’s Singers has always been live performance. Commercial recordings are hugely important as a way of disseminating their material, and the group has always been committed to a comprehensive recording programme. The best of both worlds is represented on this album: a live concert recording. Christmas Presence gives the listener the experience of being at a live King’s Singers concert, in one of the world’s most beautiful buildings from the comfort of their own home. you can be assured that there is nothing here other than what was produced on the night itself; and what better a season to celebrate with music than Christmas? The programme for this special concert takes the listener through various ages and styles of music, from the Renaissance to the present day, and it would make the perfect accompaniment to your Christmas morning- beginning with the sacred music that celebrates the birth of Jesus, move through more modern carols familiar from church and cathedral services across the nation, and ending with the musical trimmings that your roast turkey deserves.
