The Ultimate Carol Set

Our most complete carol collection
Stacks Image 46516
When complete, the Ultimate Carol Set will include a total of 116 carols for Advent, Christingle, Christmas and Epiphany. It is a recording of every item in the new Ancient and Modern book, Carols Ancient and Modern, featuring carols for both congregations and choirs. Note these recordings are accompaniment only - there is no singing.

The full set will be available in plenty of time for Christmas 2017. However, we already have the first disc from Adam Lay Ybounden, via O Come, O Come, Emmanuel to This is the Truth Sent from Above, dedicated to Advent, recorded. This is currently available to buy as a stand alone CD.

WHEN THE SET IS COMPLETE IT WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE IN MP3 FORM. The MP3 set is compact and cost effective: it is the most flexible way to play your accompaniments. Once the files are in place on a computer or iPod/MP3 player you can search for an accompaniment by the name of the hymn, the tune or the number in the A&M book. Particularly useful is the ability to set up a playlist for a particular service or event, putting the tracks you need on the day at your fingertips.

By default our MP3 sets come with a 128 kbps bit rate. This makes the files significantly smaller so that we can fit the tracks on a minimum number of disks, but the quality isn’t quite as good. In our experience, most sound systems in churches are not good enough to make the distinction apparent, so 128 kbps is fine, but should you prefer a higher bit rate we can provide enhanced discs at 256 kbps at an extra charge.

If you are concerned about bit rates, you can download a set of samples at different bit rates by clicking here.

If you prefer traditional CDs we will be able to accommodate you too with the full set of 6 audio CDs.
