Music and readings for Holy Week and Easter from the Chapel of King's College, Cambridge. The world-famous Choir, directed by Stephen Cleobury, sing some of the best-loved choral music for the season, including God So Loved the World (Stainer), Hallelujah (Handel's Messiah) and Ubi Caritas (Durufle). The Choir is joined by mezzo soprano Kiandra Howarth for a glorious performance of the Easter Hymn from Cavalleria Rusticana (Mascagni).
The story of Jesus's death and resurrection is told in the well-loved words of the King James Bible and reflected on in poems by Rowan Williams, Phineas Fletcher and Edmund Spenser, all in the magnificent setting of King's College Chapel.
