Twelve Days of Christmas KGS 0017
The King’s Men
With only eight weeks to Christmas, our thoughts are turning to a Christmas playlist and this new album from the King’s Men will provide delightful listening over the Christmas season or perhaps a nice surprise present. The King’s Men is the close-harmony vocal group formed by the current choral scholars of King’s College, Cambridge. The King’s Men functions separately from the main choir and is run entirely by the members of the group itself. Highlights of Twelve Days of Christmas includes Gabriel’s Message, All I want for Christmas is You, Dormi, dormi, Wonderful Christmastime, Away in a Manger, Quelle est cette odeur agréable, and traditional favourites including White Christmas, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas and The Twelve Days of Christmas. This delightful disc will provide very enjoyable listening over the Christmas period and beyond and is highly recommended.
