For a hundred years, all around the world, the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols has opened with Once in Royal David’s City, so we can hardly leave it out of this collection.
Set as a string quintet with French Horns to support the harmony, this setting is refreshingly different yet thoroughly familiar. Perfect for private enjoyment as well as congregational worship.
You can listen to this track through SoundCloud.
Available as audio only, or as a Lyric Video with 4 options, this setting is a comfortable sing for all congregations.
Vouchers for free access to Lyric Videos are available to our supporters through our Patreon page.
