Evensong Live 2016 (Download)


The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge
Douglas Tang & Tom Etheridge organ
Directed by Stephen Cleobury

Released 8 July 2016

 Available as a cd

The tracks on this album were recorded live during Evensong services in the 2014-2015 academic year, as part of the College’s regular Chapel webcasts. This second collection of treasures 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.
