Christmas at St Mary’s Kidlington

The choir and choristers at St Mary’s have assembled a superb collection of all 15 festive recordings that they have made over the last month. Some items were recorded during choir/chorister rehearsals, and others “live” during the in-person carol services. You can listen to them all on YouTube here.

The full list is:

  • Away in a Manger
  • Ding dong, merrily on high
  • Hark, the herald angels sing
  • In dulci jubilo BWV 729 – Bach
  • In the bleak midwinter
  • O come, all ye faithful
  • O little town of Bethlehem
  • Once in royal David’s city
  • Postlude on Adeste Fideles – Thiman
  • Silent night
  • The Angel Gabriel
  • Torches – Joubert
  • Unto us is born a Son
  • We wish you a merry Christmas
  • While shepherds watched

With limited rehearsal time and no opportunities for “second takes”, the results are fantastic. Thank you to all of them (and of course to David Hewett).
