Christmas Eve At King's College, Cambridge - 1983

Here is another school record, but this one if a college record. It is very traditional and when I say traditional I mean in the classical music sense of the word. There are a lot of really old hymns on this one. They sound sublime and if you close your eyes you'll think your in a church. Maybe that is good and maybe that is bad. For me it is good.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I bought record used this as a gift for a friend of mine a few Christmases ago, and have regretted it since. I listened to it 1 time before I gave it to him and it instantly became my favorite Christmas album. To find it here, transferred from the original vinyl is AMAZING. You have no idea what a blessing this is, you may have given me my favorite Christmas present this year. THANK YOU THANK YOU!

As hard as it is to believe, today I got a notice from Blogger that I had to take down the "offending" links. I can't believe someone is so worried about copyright laws on this out of print record. Well at least a few people got to enjoy it.
