Christmas from Winchester
This recording features some of the wonderful music that can be heard at Winchester Cathedral during the Christmas period, including its famous carol services. It includes many familiar and well-loved carols such as O come, all ye faithful, In the bleak midwinter, and the Sans Day Carol, as well as the whole of A Ceremony of Carols, composer Benjamin Britten’s great 1942 work, with its evocative settings of medieval English texts.
