Christmas from Lichfield – The Choir of Lichfield Cathedral, Andrew Lumsden

Music has been part of the daily worship in Lichfield Cathedral from very early times. The present Choral Foundation can be traced back at least as far as 1315.

Today, the Choir consists of eighteen boy choristers (aged nine to thirteen), nine Lay Vicars Choral, and three choral scholars. The primary purpose of the Choir is to lead the music for the opus dei, the daily worship in the Cathedral. Its repertoire embraces the whole span of church music, from Gregorian chant to music of the present day. Apart from the monthly cycle of psalms, it is rare for the Choir to sing the same piece twice in any one term, even though it may sing more than eighty services in that time.

This glorious recording of Christmas music was made in the mid-1990s and displays the fine tradition of the Choir to the full. Its mixture of familiar and not so familiar Christmas items makes for a superb programme of festive music.
