ST. PAUL, Minn. — On April 4, 2013 Classical MPR welcomed the return of The Choir of King's College, Cambridge to the Cathedral of St. Paul. Hear it again Saturday, April 20th at 7 p.m.

Michael Barone, who hosts the choir's appearance in their treasured broadcast of A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols each Christmas Eve, was the host for the broadcast of this concert on Classical MPR.

More about the Choir:

Founded in the fifteenth century, the Choir of King's College, Cambridge is undoubtedly one of the world's best known choral groups. Every Christmas Eve millions of people worldwide tune into A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, a service that has been broadcast each year by the BBC since 1928.

While the choir exists primarily to sing the daily services in King's College Chapel, its worldwide fame and reputation, enhanced by its many recordings, has led to invitations to perform around the globe, and to an extensive international tour schedule.
