Improvisation on ‘Adeste Fideles’

In 2005 King’s College Cambridge commissioned this work as the final voluntary for its service of Nine Lessons and Carols; the premiere performance was given live on air by the then Senior Organ Scholar, Tom Winpenny (now Assistant Organist at St Albans Cathedral).

In 2020 the same work again ends the Christmas service from King’s, this time performed by Matthew Martin, Organist and Director of Chapel Music at neighbouring Gonville and Caius College. The service is broadcast live on BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service at 3.00 p.m. on Christmas Eve, then televised on BBC2 at 5.30 p.m.
