A musical gift from Cambridge

Saturday morning (U.S.) 24 December
A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols
King’s College, Cambridge

Yours truly adores this broadcast.  There’s something authentic about hearing the King James version of traditional Biblical texts read in the accents which (one assumes) were used 400 years ago when the King James version of The Bible was first translated.

From their site:  Listening to the service
“A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is broadcast live on BBC Radio 4 on 24 December at 3pm. It is also broadcast at 2pm on Radio 3 on Christmas Day, and at various times on the BBC World Service. In the United States the service is broadcast by American Public Media and Minnesota Public Radio.”

To date, Cambridge hasn’t posted this year’s programme.
One assumes when that occurs, then American Public Media will update their Festival web page.

Check your local public radio or classical station listings to confirm day/time in your area.

Recordings are available here, amongst other locations online.
