If you scroll down the page and click on the links below you can listen to the various pieces we are learning to sing at the Carol Service

Some of these are computer generated audio files so you will not hear any words but you should hear all the notes sung to AH

There are 3 versions of each audio file

ALL PARTS ... in this version you can hear all 4 parts to see what the piece should sound like

LADIES' PARTS ... in this version the LADIES' parts are louder to help them learn their parts

MEN'S PARTS ... in this version the MEN'S parts are louder to help them learn their parts

There are also a couple of links to videos of some of the carols sung by the choir of King's College Cambridge

BELOW THE FOUR CAROLS THERE ARE NOW ALSO LINKS TO  SOME DESCANTS

DESCANTS for some of the carols

Once in royal David's city

O little town of Bethlehem

See amid the winter's snow

God rest you merry, gentlemen

Unto us is born a Son

O come all ye faithful

Hark the herald angel's sing
