Celebrating the lives of three 20th Century British composers. John Tavener (28 January 1944 – 12 November 2013) The Lamb A four-part choral setting of William Blake's poem, sung here by King's College Choir, Cambridge. Benjamin Britten (22 November 1913 – 4 December 1976) This little babe from A Ceremony of Carols is sung here by Schola Cantorum Leipzig. John Rutter is well known for his scrunchy harmonies A Gaelic Blessing is here sung by The Cambridge Singers, directed by the composer. And with our best wishes for 2014.
