'Easter from King’s' is the first DVD release of the regular BBC broadcast which forms a cornerstone of the BBC’s Easter programming. This service was first broadcast at Easter 2014 from the College’s awe-inspiring Chapel. Featuring seasonal hymns and readings alongside choral favourites, including Allegri’s 'Miserere', the Lacrimosa from Mozart’s Requiem, the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s 'Messiah' and Cesar Frank’s 'Panis Angelicus', this collection presents a contemplation of Christ’s death and resurrection.

This world-famous choir is perhaps best-known for its Christmas broadcasts, but gives daily sung services in the beautiful surroundings of King’s College Chapel. Cameras are normally forbidden during services, so this DVD provides a rare opportunity to experience the choir engaged in its core activity, celebrating the most important festival of the Christian calendar.

The DVD joins the label’s other critically-acclaimed recordings, including their first celebrated DVD release 'Carols from King’s'. Included is a booklet with notes in English and a reproduction of the original service booklet with hymn texts.
