King's Carol

After hearing all the cheesy Christmas songs in every
store and mall for the last few weeks, it's nice to come
home and listen to the real thing. 


  1. Wow. Glorious singing in a spectacular setting. Beauty and purity.

    Makes me even want to go to church (... or at least to Cambridge).

  2. It's a great place for music. I remember hearing Brahms's Requieum in the chapel at Kings and the acoustics were awesome.

  3. I've listened to the King's College Carols most of my life. It's really all I care to hear; everything else sounds like Charlie Brown's teacher. Wah wah, wah wah wah, wah wah.

  4. Beautiful.

    I thought I'd get away from cheesy Christmas tunes, but they play them in Japanese stores too! Drives me nuts (so I just don't go).

    I miss those Maui Brass Ensemble gigs this time of year. We had great arrangements (some of them jazz) and played malls, hotels and churches including a midnight mass with choir and pipe organ. Not in this league, perhaps, but real music.
