Carols for Christmas features 24 popular carols in special arrangements by Sir David Willcocks, former director of London's Royal College of Music, taken from the songbook Carols for Christmas, which he compiled for The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

The traditional carols are lavishly illustrated and enhanced by works of art and images of Christmas from the Museum's collections - a rich profusion of paintings, prints, decorative and entertaining illustrations, which are a splendid seasonal complement to the songs.

The soloists are Aled Jones, who, as a young Welsh choirboy, was acclaimed as having one of the best treble voices ever heard, and Canadian baritone, Gerald Finley, who has become one of the leading singers of his generation. With its innovative arrangements of time-honored melodies and its marvelous illustrations, Carols for Christmas is for everyone who values music and art.

Filmed in St. Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St. Edmunds, UK
