About

The Choir at King’s performs evensong six times a week, in addition to Sunday eucharist or matins, furnishing the liturgy with music on a daily basis. This tradition has fostered many of the greatest choirs, singers and organists in the world.

'Evensong Live 2015' is drawn from the best of the Choir’s weekly webcasts recorded during the preceding academic year, as selected by the Choir’s Director of Music, Stephen Cleobury. These 80 minutes provide a cross section of some of the everyday music-making that happens at King’s, capturing the atmosphere and acoustic of the Chapel. It serves as a snapshot of the choir at a specific moment in time, and presents evensong as one of the jewels of our national heritage, not a relic, but a living and breathing part of our culture.

The recordings are made during real services, using a state-of-the-art recording system concealed in the roof, vestry and organ loft, with microphones suspended above the choir stalls and organ. Webcasts are posted every Saturday.
