King's Singers

King's Singers

One of the world's most celebrated ensembles, The King's Singers have a packed schedule of concerts, recordings, media and education work that spans the globe. Championing the work of young and established composers, they remain consummate entertainers; a class-act with a delightfully British wit. From Gesualdo and Gyorgy Ligeti to Michael Buble, The King's Singers are instantly recognizable for their spot-on intonation, their impeccable vocal blend, the flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing.

During the 2011-12 concert season, The King's Singers will perform across the world in some of the world's most beautiful concert halls including the Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Berlin Philharmonie, and the Warsaw Philharmonic Concert Hall. The King's Singers will travel to France, Germany, the US and Canada, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, the United Arab Emirates, Poland, Armenia, Belgium and the Netherlands, Austria, Luxembourg, Finland, Mexico, Japan, Korea and China, and will be featured artists at the prestigious Schleswig Holstein Music Festival in July 2011.

With a discography of well over 150 recordings The King's Singers have garnered both awards and significant critical acclaim. Their studio album Simple Gifts on Signum was awarded a Grammy in 2009. Swimming over London, a disc that aligns KS 'favourites' with new songs and new arrangements was released in 2010, alongside a world premiere recording of Music for Vespers by Pachelbel with Charivari Agreable. While touring the USA in February 2010, The King's Singers recorded an album with renowned Concordia College Choir including KS commissions by Eric Whitacre and Bob Chilcott which will be released in 2011. Over the Christmas season, the group released J.S. Bach: Christmas Oratorio, a disc of Bach's classic work in jazz arrangements by Bill Dobbins, and recorded a performance of their Joy to the World programme at London's Cadogan Hall, released as a 'live burn' on the day of the concert.

The King's Singers maintain a deep commitment to new choral music and have commissioned over 200 works from a host of prominent contemporary composers including Richard Rodney Bennett, Luciano Berio, Peter Maxwell Davies, Gyorgy Ligeti, Gian Carlo Menotti, Krzysztof Penderecki, Ned Rorem, John Rutter, Toru Takemitsu, and John Tavener.

The King's Singers have an extraordinary history on television. A favourite of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, with whom they performed as part of the Winter Olympics, they appeared on the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's Christmas Concert to a combined live audience of 80,000 which was television broadcast on PBS across the US and is available on DVD. Following their televised BBC Proms performance at the Royal Albert Hall, London (also available on DVD - awarded a Midem International Classical Award in January 2010) and appearances on BBC Breakfast television, The King's Singers appeared on Songs of Praise on BBC television (BBC One) three times in 2010, including a Christmas special.

In addition to their sold-out concerts worldwide, The King's Singers share their artistry through numerous workshops and master classes. They have clocked up phenomenal sales of sheet music with over two million pieces of print in circulation with current publisher Hal Leonard. The King's Singers' arrangements are sung by schools, college choirs and amateur and professional ensembles the world over.

King's Singers : Christmas With :  : 190295768096 : PRL564144.2

King's Singers : Christmas Withnew

Review: Christmas with The King's Singers New music, old music, music from the Renaissance and Baroque, spirituals, folksongs, jazz and pop... The Beatles, David Bowie, swing, classical avantgarde, waltzes by Strauss, and musical theatre songs. Which genre of music are the King's Singers actually yet to interpret? Which style have they not yet captured within their unique global reach and within their transparent and intimate six-voiced sound world? One thing is for sure - when the King's Singers came together at the end of the 1960s in Cambridge, no one would have believed the success story that lay ahead of them. Some musical experts were scathing: a male-only vocal sextet was most likely to be found in the pop sector. But trained voices are surely better suited to a professional career either in the opera world or in mixed professional choirs. After all, the founding members came from the famous King's College Choir - one of the oldest surviving vocal institutions with nearly 500 years of history to it's name. It is with this tradition behind them that the King's Singers display the typical British musical virtues in which seriousness and humour, self-discipline, and a dash of satire all mix together so wonderfully. This is especially evident in their Christmas repertoire. Christmas carols are a special national treasure for Brits and are therefore the focus of festivities. The six voices' festive destinations also include the continent, such as Spain and Germany. "Es ist ein Ros' entsprungen" by the German early Baroque master composer Michael Praetorius has become a Christmas standard. The world famous carol "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht" ("Silent Night") comes from the German-speaking world too, written for Christmas Eve in a village near Salzburg in 1818. The simple, classical melody radiates a little of the spirit of Mozart, who was born in Salzburg. What a pity there is no musical contribution to these Christmas festivities from Mozart, the King's Singers may have thought! Perhaps that's how they came up with the idea for an amusing and cheeky Christmas medley of melodies from the great classical composer, reinforced by the harpsichord playing of English conductor Richard Hickox and the singing of guest star Kiri Te Kanawa. © Oliver Buslau, 2017 Translation: texthouse

Songlist: Es Ist Ein Ros Entsprungen, Here We Come a Wassailing, It Came Upon the Midnight Clear, The Little Drummer Boy, I Wonder As I Wander, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Ding Dong! Merrily on High, Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht, O Little Town of Bethlehem, A Little Christmas Music (Medley Ë la Mozart), The Coventry Carol, The Boar's Head Carol, Gaudete, Joy to the World, Riu Riu Chiu, El Nino Querido, Nit de Vetlla, Deck the Hall, He Wexford Carol, The Gift, Patapan and Farandole

King's Singers : Christmas Songbooknew

Review: World-renowned a cappella group The King's Singers follow their recent Great American Songbook album with the Christmas equivalent, on a disc that pays homage to the group's roots whilst acknowledging their current passion for swing.

King's Singers : Sound of the King's Singers

Review: With an unmistakable sound and repertoire that ranges from classical to pop, Renaissance to the Beatles, and from folksongs to pop songs through to the avant-garde, the fantastic vocal sextet the King's Singers have enjoyed a unique global career. Formed in 1968, this exceptional group of English vocalists will be celebrating it's 50th birthday in the coming year. 'The Sound of The King's Singers' combines three of the group's most famous albums. Whatever music finds it's way to the Singers' six stands, the product is always fresh and sung with a bright and full yet transparent vocal sound. This includes the lively madrigals from Italy, France, England, and Germany that they recorded in 1984 during their Madrigal History Tour, which, due to the collaboration with the instrumental ensemble 'Consort of Musicke' led by Anthony Rooley, is considered a gem of early music. This is in contrast to a further great achievement of the sextet - the King's Singers' 1985 interpretations of the cheeky musical and film hits of the Comedian Harmonists, which stand as a tribute to the legendary German vocal sextet from the 1930s. In further contrast, the 1989 album 'America' is a homage to the great US pop songs by Paul Simon, Randy Newman and Jimmy Web, with refined arrangements by David Cullen which were specially written for the King's Singers and the English Chamber Orchestra under Carl Davis.

King's Singers : Madrigal Mystery Tour

Review: The reputation of the outstandingly accomplished King's Singers ensemble is firmly established throughout Europe and America. They have become well-known for the excellence of their singing and for their unique and wide-ranging repertoire that encompasses all kinds of music from the Beatles to Bach. In this 6-part Madrigal History Tour the King's Singers vocal ensemble travels through Germany, Spain, France, England and Italy to perform a varied selection of madrigals in the settings which first inspired their composition in the Golden Age of the sixteenth century. An introductory documentary looks at the origins of the madrigal in Italy and traces its development throughout Europe to become the musical rage of the High Renaissance. The six King's Singers - Jeremy Jackman, Colin Mason, Alastair Hume, Simon Carrington, Bill Ives and Anthony Holt - introduce all these programmes, with the series Musical Adviser, Anthony Rooley, a leading exponent of Early Music, contributing his expert observation.

King's Singers : Let It Snow

Review: One of Germanys best-loved classical performers joins forces with a legendary close-harmony group for a winter-themed album to bring warmth to the dark months of the year: Albrecht Mayer & The Kings Singers.

King's Singers : Pater Noster: A Choral Reflection on Lord's Prayer

Review: GRAMMY-Award winners in 2009, The King's Singers are one of the world's most celebrated ensembles. Their programming concept in this disc is unique: built upon the individual clauses of The Lord's Prayer, beginning and ending in plainchant, it ranges over the centuries to explore the spiritually charged text. Chant is at the heart of the programme, and each composer's setting illuminates the others, shedding rich interpretative light on the poetic and devotional aspects of the prayer.

Songlist: Pater noster , Die Himmel erzahlen die Ehre Gottes, Benedicimus Deum Coeli , Holy is the True Light, Masses, Book 2: Missa Papae Marcelli: Sanctus, Vater unser, der du bist im Himmel, Vigilate, Cantate Domino, 4 Petites prieres de Saint Francois d'Assise, Domine Dominus noster, Notre Pere, Op. 14, Oculi omnium, Ego sum panis vivus, The Lord's Prayer, Remember not, Lord, our offences, Popule meus, Mass: The Lord's Prayer, Lord, for Thy tender mercy's sake, Ad te levavi animam meam, Pater noster

King's Singers : Great American Songbook

Review: Around the time The King's Singers was starting up, one of the most productive periods of songwriting in history was coming to a close in America, starting with composers such as Gershwin, Kern, Berlin and Porter in the early 1920s, and continuing through to the early 1960s. In this new 2-CD studio recording - featuring brand new a cappella arrangements by jazz composer and arranger Alexander L'Estrange, and swing-orchestra performances with the South Jutland Symphony Orchestra - The King's Singers bring their own unique performance style to this wonderful music.

King's Singers : Requiem

Review: Few composers of any age have enjoyed the widespread admiration and unanimous praise of successive generations as Josquin Desprez. He is considered the greatest creator and innovator of musical composition during the Renaissance, and for some half a millennium his music has stood the test of time. He is remembered as much for his own works as for his lasting influence on those of his contemporaries and students, demonstrated in many of the compositions in tribute of 'the master' featured in this programme. The programme's centrepiece is Jean Richafort's Requiem mass (missa pro defunctis), a tribute that employs several of Josquin's compositional devices. The King's Singers once again demonstrate their versatility and trademark precision in this new programme devised by leading early-music scholar and conductor David Skinner.

Songlist: Musae Jovis a 4, Musae Jovis a 6, Salve regina, Dum vastos Adriae fluctus, O mors inevitabilis, Requiem in Memoriam Josquin Desprez, Introitus, Kyrie, Graduale, Offertorium, Sanctus & Benedictus, Agnus Dei, Communio, Nymphes, nappes

King's Singers : J.S. Bach Christmas Oratorio

Review: A stunning new jazz arrangement by Bill Dobbins of J.S. Bach's Christmas Oratorio, performed by Grammy-award-winning ensembles The King's Singers and the WDR (West German Radio, Cologne) Big Band. Recorded live in concert last year, this performance captures the timeless and versatile nature of Bach's work, retaining the integrity of the original within a wholly new musical setting. Dobbins's aims in creating the arrangement were four-fold: to convey the Christmas story of the original; to illustrate the musical diversityand imagination of the entire work through selected representative numbers from the original six cantatas;to translate the musical content and dramatic character of the original into jazz and latin idioms while retaining the spirit of Bach's music; and to showcase the talents of the ensembles.

King's Singers : Swimming Over London

Review: After the 2009 Grammy Award-winning Simple Gifts and a world premiere recording of Pachelbel Vespers in March 2010, internationally-acclaimed vocal group The King's Singers return to the studio to record Swimming Over London. Featuring a diverse array of songs, this latest release captures jazz classics, current hits, and more, all arranged, performed, and recorded with the meticulous attention to detail and artistry that has established The King's Singers as one of the finest vocal ensembles throughout their history. Swimming Over London includes five original songs, commissioned specifically for the disc and written by Mia Makaroff, composer and arranger for Finnish vocal ensemble Rajaton; Ysaye M. Barnwell of Sweet Honey in the Rock; Roger Treece, arranger and performer in Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra ensemble; Alexander L'Estrange, composer and arranger for the Swingle Singers; and Bob Chilcott, a former King's Singer. Chilcott, a respected composer of vocal music, wrote the title track for the album, an evocative tale of a woman stretching her way over London to the coast based on a poem by Charles Bennett. Roger Treece, renowned arranger for groups including Manhattan Transfer and New York Voices, composed an original song ("Keeper of the Seasons") and arranged two contrasting songs: Sarah McLachlan's beautiful "Angel" and Pat Metheny's "September 15th."

Songlist: Swimming over London, I'm Yours, Angel, By the Time, September 15th / Keeper of the Seasons, It's a New World, Don't Let Go, Hide & Seek, Lazy Bones / Up a Lazy River, Andromeda, Recipe for Love, Silent Love , Straighten Up and Fly Right, Home

King's Singers : Pachelbel Vespers

Review: The music contained in this CD represents a selection of Vespers movements written by Johann Pachelbel. The King's Singers are truly remarkable. They continue to be one of the most sought-after and critically acclaimed vocal ensembles in the world, performing a rich and varied repertoire from Gesualdo to Gyorgy Ligeti and Michael Buble. Internationally recognized for their work in the classical field, they retain the sparkle that delights so many fans when they perform much loved numbers from the lighter end of the repertoire. Whatever the music The King's Singers are instantly recognisable for their spot-on intonation, their impeccable vocal blend, the flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing. 'Charivari Agreable is one of the most versatile Early Music groups around at the moment; under its benign director, Kah-Ming Ng, it appears to be infinitely adaptable, finding musicians who can fit into any of its many and varied programmes' (International Record Review). They represent 'a new and very exciting phase of the early music revival, one that enriches the existing repertory and can bring us ever closer to the spirit of the original music' (Gramophone).

Songlist: Ingressus in C minor , Magnificat in C major, Sonata a 5 in A minor, Ingressus in E minor, Ingressus in G major, Ingressus in G minor, Sonata a 5 in G minor, Magnificat in F major, Ingressus in B-flat major

King's Singers : The Quiet Heart: Choral Essays Vol 1

Review: From the King's Singers' exquisite album The Quiet Heart - Choral Essays Volume 1, drawn from the sacred repertoire of the Salvation Army, these 13 selections are a reflective musical journey into the spirit. The invitation to perform in March 2005 as guest of the marvellous Hendon Salvation Army Band in heir special concert "Hendon Highlights" at London's Royal Festival Hall led to a relationship which resulted in the re-arranging and recording of 19 beautiful hymns for the CD, The Quiet Heart, on the SP&S label. Rather then just perform what were in many cases simple four-part hymns, they decided to take advantage of their six-part status, and so the hymns were mostly re-arranged with the inclusion of low 5ths to complement bass notes, double tunes (soprano and baritone) and the occasional extra harmony note. Some had Piano accompaniment, so for these they either converted them into vocal accompaniments or wrote a new vocal pattern to go with the tune. So here is the companion volume to the CD, in which we have included 13 of the tracks in the exact voicings as heard on the album. They work equally well in a concert hall or in a church.

Songlist: All For Thee, By His Hand, Christ's Part, Even Me, Grant Us Thy Peace, His Provision, Home To Thee (From Reflections), In The Secret Of Thy Presence, Intercede, O Lord, The Quiet Heart, Spirit Divine, To The Hills, When We Cannot See Our Way

King's Singers : 40th Anniversary Collection

Review: To celebrate their 40th anniversary the Kings Singers compiled a collection of their most-requested arrangements from the past 15 years since the release of the still best-selling 25th anniversary songbook. Some. like "Danny Boy", "All I Ask Of You" and "Blackbird" date from earlier in the group's history but are still performed regularly by the group and choirs all over the world. Others, such as "Down To The River To Pray", "Under The Sea" and "Africa" have already established themselves in the repertoire of many groups they come in contact with on their tours. Here, then, is a carefully selected mix of folk songs, pop songs and spirituals plus the exquisite Victorian parlor song "The Long Day Closes".

Songlist: Africa, All I Ask Of You, Blackbird, Danny Boy, Down to The River to Pray, The Little Drummer Boy, The Long Day Closes, Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel), Penny Lane, Rise Up, Shepherd, And Follow, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, Under The Sea, The Water Is Wide

King's Singers : A Workshop

Review: Experience the insights, the expertise, the inspiration and the fun of the King's Singers in concert at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Hall in Dallas, Texas, in rehearsal, in informal interviews and in workshops. The group uses various high school choirs, in a workshop setting, to demonstrate their philosophy and approach. The King's Singers, wearing casual apparel, gently and humorously coach their charges on important but subtle details of phrasing, dynamics and most importantly, interpretation, as on Bob Chilcott's arrangement of "Shenandoah." The group, in spite of their daunting technical know-how, make the point that fun while singing is the purpose; the obviously warm rapport they have amongst themselves is ample evidence that this is so!

King's Singers : Simple Gifts

Review: "Simple Gifts" is a very rare and special gift to us, as it represents the first full a cappella studio album by the legendary King's Singers in 10 years. Arguably the most popular a cappella group of all time, whose flawless harmonies grace over 30 finely-crafted CDs and a slew of songbooks in the Primarily A Cappella online catalog, we will assume that you know how good these six British men really are. So let's talk about some of the 16 carefully-selected songs: Billy Joel's classic "She's Always A Woman," James Taylor's sublime "You Can Close Your Eyes," the traditional joyous round "The Gift to Be Simple," Stephen Stills' harmonic CSN&Y gem "Helplessly Hoping," some wonderfully-arranged spirituals, "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," "Deep River," "The Water is Wide" and "Steal Away," all of which feature some sweet deep bass leads. Randy Newman's poignant "When She Loved Me," Sting's "Valparaiso," Paul Simon's "April Come She Will Come" these are some of our picks for the most beautiful songs of all time. They are arranged by group member Phillip Lawson, Bob Chilcott and Peter Knight, and then sung as beautifully as you can imagine by the King's Singers. The King's Singers incredible blend and tuning goes to ensure that this is probably their finest recording in a long time. Enough said!

Songlist: She's Always A Woman, You Can Close Your Eyes, Greensleeves, The Gift to be Simple, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, Helplessly Hoping, Deep River, Black is the Color, I Love My Love, The Water is Wide, When She Loved Me, Valparaiso, The Turtle Dove, April Come She Will, Steal Away, You are the New Day

King's Singers : The Golden Age

Review: "For a group like ours the choice of repertoire for recording often seems bewilderingly large. So why did we choose Portugese, Spanish and Mexican music from the period known as the Siglo de Oro - the Golden Age? The idea came from our church concert programs, where acoustics, space and atmosphere allow great scope for drama. Beginning at the back of the church with Crux fidelis and slowly moving eastwards as the piece unfolds has proved to be a magical way to start. More than one audience member has told us that if the concert had ended after that one piece, they would have gone home happy. But that would have denied them the chance of hearing one of the most famous pieces from this era - Alonso Lobo's incredible version of Versa est in luctum, which often closes the first half of the concerts." - The King's Singers

Songlist: Crux fidelis, Kyrie (Mass Mille Regretz), Versa est in luctum, In ieiunio et fletu, Versa est in luctum, Lamentations, Versa est in luctum, Pia et dolorosa mater, Versa est in luctum, Libera me

King's Singers : Landscape & Time

Review: The King's Singers present a disc of some of their best and most requested repertoire. We are all shaped, perhaps unconsciously, by the landscape and time in which we live. This evocative and spiritual programme, which contains five King's Singers commissions, explores the links between human life and it's surroundings through the different personal languages of poets and composers. Music from the Orkneys to the American desert, from Finland, Estonia and England to Hungary and Japan makes this one of the King's Singers finest recordings in years.

King's Singers : Tallis: Spem In Alium

Review: "Spem in alium," not just the greatest of Tallis's compositions but one of the greatest of all time, is based on a liturgical text, written for 40 independent voices, and was first performed in England in 1573. A work for 40 voices is not one that would usually be associate with the legendary all male sextet The King's Singers. Through modern recording technology, flexibility and experimentation, the six have become 40, a true harmonic convergence that occurs when the pairs high, sweet voices throw the sound across the space between them until finally all voices join for a full culmination of the work. "Spem" is a stunningly beautiful piece, although very short, eight minutes and 22 seconds to be precise, and we listened to it several times to truly appreciate it. The piece is followed by a 6-minute interview with the Singers, who discuss the experience of recording it. A short sublimely beautiful piece, recorded by one of the world's finest choral ensembles.

King's Singers : Colouring Book

Review: The King's Singers were the first to apply choral technique to popular material and Colouring Book concentrates on their unforgettable arrangements of international pop hits of the sixties and early seventies. Some of the selections are drawn from their sessions with Beatles' producer George Martin including the remarkable 'She's Leaving Home'. Several of their Lennon and McCartney recordings are well represented here alongside songs written by the other giants of contemporary pop; Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, David Bowie and Neil Young. To these diverse writers, the King's Singers bring their beautiful tone, balance and synchronization with equally marvelous effect.

King's Singers : Sacred Bridges

Review: For nearly 40 years, the King's Singers have delighted audiences around the world with their charm, wit and incomparable musicianship. Esteemed for the authenticity of their period style and their exemplary word painting, the King's Singers are "still unmatched for their musicality and sheer ability to entertain" (The London Times). Joining them for this recording is Sarband, an instrumental ensemble renowned for demonstrating the connections between European, Islamic and Jewish musical cultures. Celebrating the symbiotic relationship between the Orient and the Occident, Sarband's mission is to show that music is a form of communication in which people can find common ground and respect for one another. On Sacred Bridges, these two groups unite in celebration of the rich connections - literally sacred bridges - between Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The program consists of settings of four Psalms of David to music by Christian, Jewish and Muslim composers that demonstrate the central importance of the works to the three religions. The artists demonstrate that by examining the similarities and bridges among each religion, we can forge tolerance and understanding in a world that desperately needs more of each.

King's Singers : Six

Review: After years at the pinnacle of a cappella choral music, the King's Singers show no sign of slowing down, as their creativity and number of appearances throughout the world remain undimmed. In what has been described as their 3rd generation, "Six" is a tasty sampler spanning the life of the group since their founding in the explosive rock decade of the 1960s. The spiritual "Down In The River To Pray" appeared in the movie "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", arranged by Singer Phillip Lawson, who also arranged this sublime cover of Billy Joel's "Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel)." Lennon/McCartney's "Blackbird" is one of the most-requested encores in the KS' live concert repertoire. "The Wishing Tree" by former Divine Comedy member Joby Talbot, was commissioned by the KS and the BBC. Irving Berlin's moody jazz classic "Blue Skies" is sung in a cool and reflective arrangement by Singer Richard Bennett. The final cut is a soaring, surreal arrangement of Neil Young's deathless, "After the Goldrush," which takes our breath away and leaves us wanting to hear much more. One forgets just how exceptional the King's Singers are, until one is able to see them live, or one settles back next to the stereo in a comfortable chair and lets the beauty of these "Six" wash over him like a subtle, perfect tide.

Songlist: Down to the River to Pray, Blackbird, The Wishing Tree , Lullabye , Blue Skies , After the Goldrush

Review: On November 5, 1605, Guy Fawkes was caught preparing to detonate 36 barrels of gunpowder under the House of Lords, unveiling and act of attempted treason that shocked the whole of Europe.Commemorating the 400th anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot, the King's Singers and Concordia illuminate the dangers of hearing Mass in secret, of conspiracy and downfall, and the protestant relief and great joy. The music, structured around Byrd's perfect 4-part Mass, contains motets by catholic composers, protestant anthems celebrating the downfall of the plot, and a commission from the British composer, Francis Pott, Master Tresham: His Ducke. A script, drawing on historic texts and reproduced in the CD booklet, uses the dramatized persona of William Byrd, the most celebrated composer of his age, to recreate the atmosphere of change and hope in the Jacobean court.

From the King's Singers and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra "Music of the Beatles" album, 'When I'm 64' is a fun and swinging arrangement of the Lennon and McCartney classic. Featuring inventive jazz band-style vocal accompaniments throughout, everyone gets their turn singing the clever lyrics of the melody. From their recording, Beatles Connection, the often-requested arrangement of 'Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da' is available for the first time. The setting of the heart-felt Lennon and McCartney ballad, 'Here, There and Everywhere' is featured on the King's Singers and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra "Music of the Beatles" album. In this Paul Hart arrangement, the melody is supported by gentle rhythms and countermelodies in the other voices. A perfect opportunity to feature soloists.

King's Singers : Sweet Songs of Yore

Review: 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!

The haunting melody of the Canadian folk song " She's Like the Swallow" is accented by a lyric vocal accompaniment. Perfect for large group or ensemble use.

King's Singers : Gesualdo

Review: If you like The King's Singers, you'll love this CD! Gesualdo: Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday offers a small slice from the liturgy used for Holy Week. All tracks are superbly performed. The voices weave together to form a solid fabric of stunning polyphony. The responsories, here, are divided into three sets beginning with lessons from the Lamentations of Jeremiah. Gesualdo, an eccentric Italian prince and one of the Renaissance's more innovative composers, is best remembered for killing his wife and her lover while they were in bed together. His guilt over this shocking and passionate act is said to be mirrored in his music with its chromatic and often indulgent lines. The music is liturgical in nature, but this recording can be appreciated inside and out of the sanctuary.

Songlist: Lectio 1, Responsories from 1st Nocturn:, - In Monte Oliveti, - Tristis est anima mea, - Ecce vidimus eum, Lectio 2, Responsories from 2nd Nocturn:, - Amicus meus osculi, - Judas mercator pessimus, - Unus ex discipulis meis, Lectio 3, Responsories from 3rd Nocturn:, - Eram quasi agnus innocens, - Une hora non potuistis, - Seniores populi consilium, Benedictus, Christus factus est
