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.

Broadcast originally at Easter 2014. 74 mins running time. A BBC Religion and Ethics Production for BBC TWO.
