Hereford Cathedral Choir, Roy Massey

One of the top English Cathedral choirs sing a varied programme of many popular carols for Advent and Christmastide together with lesser known ones particular to Hereford Cathedral.  Embark with them on a whistle-stop tour of Europe, taking in musical styles from thirteeth to twentieth centuries, and including some of the most beautiful melodies ever written.  An inspiring programme, which would be hard to match, at one of England’s most visited Cathedrals.
