From the fascinating history of carols since the first ever one sung by angels for the shepherds at Bethlehem to anecdotes about choristers and their preparation for performance, we learn how carols have become one of the nation's most sacred treasures of the joyous season. Accompanied by lyrics and music and compiled in conjunction with Radio 4 and King's College Chapel, Carols From King's is the official companion for fans of Christmas and carols alike."@en ;
