The traditional celebration of Christmas from the chapel of King's College in Cambridge begins with a solo chorister singing 'Once in Royal David's City'. Stephen Cleobury conducts the famous chapel choir in carols old and new, including 'The Angel Gabriel', 'The Holly and The Ivy' and 'Silent Night', while the story of the Nativity is told in the familiar words of the King James' bible along with Christmas poems by Rainer Maria Rilke, William Austin and Laurie Lee.
