Boris Ord composed one tiny Christmas carol – ‘Adam lay ybounden’. But Ord’s largest contribution to the carol genre was his work as choirmaster at King’s College, Cambridge from 1929 to 1957. 

This lecture shows how Ord built on Arthur Mann’s pioneering work with King’s Choir and created a singing style that transformed choral performance internationally. 

The radio broadcasts of the King’s Carol Service under Ord’s directorship were legendary, and the 1954 television broadcast of the service was a game-changer.

Cost: Free of Charge
