Evensong Live 2015 (Download)


The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge
Directed by Stephen Cleobury

Released 1 June 2015

 Available as a cd

The tracks on this album were recorded live during Evensong services in the 2013-2014 academic year, as part of the College’s regular Chapel webcasts. This collection provides a snapshot of the ensemble during a fleeting moment in its five-century history, and a glimpse of the daily music making that is so integral to life at King’s. The album includes the stunning Quatre motets pour le temps de Noël by the French composer Francis Poulenc.

The recordings were made during services using a state-of-the-art recording system concealed in the roof, vestry and organ loft, with microphones suspended discreetly above the choir stalls.
