I didn't learn about the King's Singers until I was in junior high school, but have loved them ever since. This song isn't a Christmas song, but so very beautiful. I think my favorite is when they sing 'The Flight of the Bumblebee'
The Tudor Choir kicks off the holiday season with a fun and lively performance of early American carols and songs from New England, Appalachian, and Shaker traditions—a perfect family performance in celebration of Thanksgiving weekend. Raucous tunes in the shape note tradition; simple, heartfelt Shaker melodies; and the proud and vigorous New England “primitive” style of music introduce holiday fare from traditions that combine to create America’s vital and inspiring musical heritage.

Two composer-performers, two continents, and one very exciting collaborative work of art. “Cri Selon Cri” (or, “Cry by Cry” in English) is the brainchild of France’s Thierry Pécou and the United States’ Bielawa. Their vision will be brought to life by Pécou's Ensemble Variances and Bielawa's vocals.
