There are numerous recordings of Christmas carols by British collegiate choirs. There are quite a few by the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, and there are even two with the title Carols from King's, necessitating the unwieldy "2020 Collection" parenthesis: which moreover is inaccurate. The album is a live recording, not a collection, and it was made in 2019. All of this said this is a distinctive holiday recording that should have legs beyond its release in the 2020 Christmas season. The live recording, from a 2019 BBC television broadcast, sets the album apart in itself, and it's exceptionally well done, capturing the energetic immediacy of the young choristers. Most distinctive is the program, which is unusually contemporary by the standards of releases of this kind. Familiar carols are present, but often in fresh arrangements, and there are contemporary pieces that fit nicely into the program. These include Philip Moore's The Angel Gabriel, newly commissioned by the choir; Elizabeth Maconchy's There Is No Rose of Such Virtue, a fascinating take on old melodic material; and John Rutter's Candlelight Carol. For listeners in search of a holiday recording just a bit out of the mainstream, this will fill the bill well.
