A Celebration of Christmas from the Chapel of King's College, Cambridge
A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is the Christmas Eve service held in King's College Chapel. The Festival was introduced in 1918 to bring a more imaginative approach to worship. It was first broadcast in 1928 and is now broadcast to millions of people around the world.
The service includes carols and readings from the Bible. The opening carol is always 'Once in Royal David's City', and the service ends with 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.'
Carols from King's, is recorded for television earlier in December and has been broadcast since 1954. It is shown on BBC 2 on Christmas Eve.
If you missed it we have selected an appropriate carol for Christmastide — 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing'.
Just turn up the volume and click on the image on the right.
We hope you enjoy the carol and we wish you A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
