When He is King - A selection of music for Christmas. This fresh release is the first CD ever to be recorded by the Chapel Choir of St Hild and St Bede College, Durham University.

From the fine acoustic of Bede Chapel in Durham, this sublime Christmas track-list, which alternates between the beautiful choral a cappella to some of the finest, organ filled carols, provides the perfect festive gift for friends and relatives.

Arguably reputed as the Best college Choir in Durham, the Hild Bede Chapel Choir have featured on this year’s BBC Songs of Praise. They have toured internationally in New York, singing at St Thomas Fifth Avenue and the cathedral of St. John the Divine (the largest Anglican cathedral in the world),Heidelberg in Germany, and also nationally at Windsor Castle, St. Paul's Cathedral Cathedral and, of course, Durham Cathedral.”
