About the album

This new release from The Choir of Chapel Royal features Christmas carols both old and new. These songs were recorded in St. James’s Palace, London, and the stunning acoustics can be heard in each track. Huw Williams currently serves as Director of Music at Her Majesty’s Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace. He also directs Cantemus Chamber Choir and Stroud Choral Society, and is on the faculty at Eton College.
Koor met sterke reputatie zingt aan hen verbonden kerstliederen
Het choir of Her Majesty’s Chapel Royal heeft een lange geschiedenis en een sterke reputatie. Op dit kerstalbum leidt Huw Williams het koor in feestelijke opnames van oude en nieuwe kerstliederen. De liederen zijn opgenomen in St James’s Palace, waar het koor zelden opnames maakt.

Deze diverse en kleurrijke selectie bevat kerstliederen van de 16e eeuw tot aan vandaag de dag, van verschillende componisten die een connectie hadden met de Chapel Royal of de Britse koninklijke familie. Ook Adeste Fidelis kan verbonden worden met de Chapel Royal, omdat verondersteld wordt dat het werk geschreven werd voor The Queen’s Chapel, nu een onderdeel van de Chapel Royal. De muziek is afkomstig uit zeven verschillende landen, waaronder naast Engeland ook Rusland, Wales en Spanje.

The choir of Her Majesty's Chapel Royal has a long history and strong reputation.

The choir still sings the weekly service in the Chapel Royal or The Queen's Chapel and at other events as commanded by The Queen. These include the annual Royal Maundy service, the Remembrance Day Parade at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, and, in recent years, the funeral of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother at Westminster Abbey and the Golden Jubilee Service at St Paul's Cathedral.

The choir consists of six Gentlemen-in-Ordinary, who are professional singers, and ten children of the Chapel Royal, boy choristers who hold choral scholarships at the City of London School.
