This Christmas album celebrates the Choir’s illustrious history, and offers some of the most beloved carols from throughout the ages. Several of the composers and arrangers of the popular carols featured on this album had associations with The Queen’s College. This is truly ‘Carols from Queen’s’. The Boar’s Head Carol is the work most strongly associated with the heritage of the College. Kenneth Leighton (Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child) and Herbert Howells (A spotless Rose), two prominent 20th-century British composers of sacred choral music, both studied at The Queen’s College. Harold Darke (In the bleak midwinter) and Ivor Atkins (The Three Kings) were both members of Queen’s.
