A new album of Christmas Carols – the inaugural recording of the Choir of King's College, Cambridge with Director of Music, Daniel Hyde

In the Bleak Midwinter reflects a Christmas that was unlike any other in recent history. Much of the music on this album was heard around the world as part of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, a service that has been broadcast live on Christmas Eve every year since 1930.
