Founded in the fifteenth century the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, is undoubtedly one of the world's best known choral groups. Every Christmas Eve millions of people worldwide tune into A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols that has been broadcast each year by the BBC since 1928.
While the choir exists primarily to sing at the daily church services of King's College Chapel, its worldwide fame and reputation has led to invitations to perform throughout the world. The Choir records for EMI Classics and in the Autumn of 2007 it released an early English music collaboration with the viol ensemble Fretwork "I Heard a Voice", music by Tudor composers.
Recent and future engagements for Kings include the Beethovenfest in Bonn, the Royal Albert Hall in London, Tallinn International Organ Festival, Flanders Festival in Gent, Palace of the Arts in Budapest, Stresa Festival, Santa Cecilia in Rome and a return visit to the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. The Choir made its first ever visit to South America in December 07 and will follow its acclaimed tour of the United States in December 2005 with a return to the US in April 2008.
