Various Arrangers : Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young A Cappella

Here is the 1970 pop hit by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young "Teach Your Children" in an a cappella setting that is fresh and unique! Rhythmically free and expansive, the melody harmonized in triads is juxtaposed against long accompanying vocal lines to highlight the powerful message inherent in the text. The Crosby, Stills and Nash song from their debut 1969 album "Helplessly Hoping" translates perfectly to the signature vocal style of the King's Singers. "After The Gold Rush" is the haunting song by Neil Young in a richly expressive a cappella setting. Audiences love these pop classics and great for the parents to sing along with.

King's Singers : Love Songs

It's no surprise that The King's Singers have recorded a huge number of love songs on all kinds of albums over the last fifty years. Some of these were albums devoted to love songs like Chanson d'amour and Romance du soir. Other albums couldn't help but include music about love, although their theme was actually different. This album, Love Songs, is a chance to revisit some of the ensemble's favorite tracks that they've recorded over the last two decades, compiled from across their back catalogue with Signum Records. The tracks they've chosen have come from five different albums, released between 2008 and 2017. Rather than trying to take in any of the enormous number of classical love songs from the back catalogue, the group wanted to focus on some of the best folk songs, jazz standards, and pop songs that have featured in King's Singers concerts throughout their history. This selection has been curated especially to celebrate the group's favorite recent albums, and to show how rich and varied the tapestry of love songs we have today is.

Songlist: When She Loved Me, All of Me, I've Got the World on a String, Tuoll on Mun Kultani, Don't Worry About Me, April Come She Will, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, Arrirang, Quand Tu Dors PRéS de Moi, Beyond the Sea, Love Is Here to Stay, I Love My Love, O My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose, I Won't Dance, Helplessly Hoping, At Last, Some Folks' Lives Roll Easy, When I Fall in Love

King's Singers : Simple Gifts

"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
