Internationally recognized as the pre-eminent representative of the great British church music tradition, the Choir of King’s College owes its existence to King Henry VI who envisaged the daily singing of services in his magnificent chapel. This remains the Choir's raison d'ętre. Today's Choir derives its worldwide fame and reputation from the annual broadcast of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols which is heard on radio by millions all over the world and which this year will celebrate the 75th anniversary of its first broadcast, together with the now well-established television program, Carols from King's. It is also famous for its many recordings and for its international touring program.
