Editors' Notes Carols are meant to be sung by one and all, and what sounds cosy and familiar coming from your local choir is even more stirring in the hands of the world's greatest choruses. We've gathered recordings of renowned choirs such as Harry Christophers' ensemble The Sixteen and the Choir of King's College, Cambridge for a cappella and organ-assisted winter classics that balance subtlety and power.
