Today students from the Phoenix School attended the annual King’s College Choir Carols for Schools Concert in King’s College Chapel in Cambridge. This was a wonderful opportunity to listen to the world renowned choir perform a version of the iconic Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols service which has been broadcast around the world on Christmas Eve since 1928. Today’s concert included the first public performance of a specially commissioned carol, ‘O Mercy Divine’ composed by Judith Weir. This carol will be officially premiered on Christmas Eve 2018. Students listened to a wide range of carols performed by the choir alongside biblical extracts re-telling the Christmas story. There was also the opportunity to join the choir singing some of the more familiar carols.
