"There are angels singing"

It's 1954. The film is black & white, so we can't see the red and white surplices of the choir, and the camera wanders away from them anyhow, and ponders the great windows. You don't care. You have gone back fifty years to the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, during the first televised broadcast of "A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols," and found your way, despite occasional static, to a tender loveliness. Or so I hope. Bruce Ord is the director. The carol is "In dulci jubilo".
