About the album

The Choir of the Queen’s College, Oxford is one of the world’s most renowned choral institutions. Carols from Queen’s presents the choir in all its luxuriant glory. This blockbuster holiday album celebrates the Choir’s illustrious history, and offers some of the most beloved carols from throughout the ages.
Several of the composers and arrangers of the popular carols featured on this album had associations with The Queen’s College. This is truly ‘Carols from Queen’s’.
The Boar’s Head Carol is the work most strongly associated with the heritage of the College. It originated in the 14th century at Queen’s and has been sung every year since at the Christmas time Boar’s Head Feast in the College Hall. Kenneth Leighton (Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child) and Herbert Howells (A spotless Rose), two prominent 20th- century British composers of sacred choral music, both studied at The Queen’s College. Harold Darke (In the bleak midwinter) and Ivor Atkins (The Three Kings) were both members of Queen’s. Atkins’s ever-popular arrangement of The Three Kings appeared in the much-used anthology Carols for Choirs I, compiled in part by Reginald Jacques, a student at Queen’s who become Organist of the College from 1926 – 1936, and a Fellow. Several best-loved carols from this volume are featured on this album.
