On Christmas Night - Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford

The acclaimed Magdalen College Choir celebrates the diversity of the twentieth-century English carol repertoire in a programme that combines well-loved standards and innovative choir favourites ranging in emotion from quiet contemplation to festive joy. The selection of carols and organ solos, led by director and organist Daniel Hyde, culminates in Ralph Vaughan Williams's celebrated Fantasia on Christmas Carols with renowned baritone Roderick Williams in the solo part.
