A magnificent 6-part setting of Psalm 118:24 by William Byrd, 'Haec Dies' offers a glimpse into the splendor of the English Renaissance. The lilting English folksong, 'I Love My Love' is one of a group of great arrangements in the King'singers' repertoire. In 'O Lord, Make Thy Servant Elizabeth Thy Queen,' a choral tribute to Queen Elizabeth I, William Byrd's great compositional artistry is fully evident, with long sustained phrases, bass pedal tones, and striking dissonances. This challenging and substantial work is ideal for madrigal groups and advanced ensembles. 'She Moved Through The Fair' and 'The Star of the County Down' are two of the King's Singers' favorite and most-requested Irish ballad. The evocative setting of 'The Turle Dove,' one of the most treasured folksongs of all time, is new to the King's Singers' repertoire. Sure to become a classic!
