Music sung by the Choir of King's College, Cambridge at Church of the Incarnation, 26 March 2015

In March 2015 the Choir of King's College, Cambridge performed a sold-out concert at Church of the Incarnation in Dallas, an exciting event for all devotees of the Anglican choral tradition in North Texas. Unfortunately, due to my own Dallas Symphony obligations, I was only able to hear the first three pieces of the printed program (plus the second and final encore). In order to get an idea of what the entire concert might have sounded like, I've put together this collection of videos. When possible, I have favoured English choirs of men and boys, though not necessarily King's, depending on what's available on YouTube. While no substitute for attending a live performance, hopefully this is the next best thing.
