The King's College Choir Adds A Little Helium To Their Performance

May 27, 2015 By Christi Mulligan
Uploaded just in time for April Fools' Day, the King's College Choir had a bit of fun with this post. The King's College was founded in the fifteenth century by King Henry VI, and the Choir of King's College, Cambridge is considered the epitome of British church music tradition. They are most famous for singing "A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols," and they have been broadcast by the BBC since 1928.

The choir is comprised of 16 boy choristers, who are between the ages of 9 and 13, and 14 male undergraduate students from a variety of subject areas. There are also two organ scholars. The choir sings at daily chapel services, their primary duty since 1441. Today's choir continues this tradition along with performing functions all over the United Kingdom and, sometimes, throughout the world.
