Choir of King's College, Cambridge: Carols From King's

Once in royal David's city
Quem pastores laudavere
In dulci jubilo
Angels from the realms of glory
In the bleak mid-winter
Quittez, pasteurs
While shepherds watched
Silent Night
The Shepherd's Carol
The Angels and the Shepherds
Riu, riu, chiu
O little town of Bethlehem
The Shepherds' Farewell
I wonder as I wander
Small wonder the star
Sussex Carol
Gloria in excelsis Deo
God rest ye merry gentlemen
Hark! the herald angels sing
