The King's Singers

[ Signum / 3 CD ]

Release Date: Friday 3 November 2017

To mark their 50th anniversary, The King's Singers have made it their mission to celebrate great music above all else - an aim which has driven them throughout their history.

Their newly recorded triple-disc album - GOLD - completely reflects this with 60 tracks divided across three albums, themed as Close Harmony, Spiritual and Secular. What unites every track across these albums is the quality of the material. Whether ancient motets, brand new commissions or much-loved arrangements of close-harmony music from the last 50 years, The King's Singers have put together a selection of great music that reflects the extra-ordinary diversity of their repertoire.

"The famed King's Singers attention to pin-point pitching, slick ensemble, and deft balances between the voices are present in abundance. The two Beatles arrangements are particularly successful…The brief, spectacular Bobby Shaftoe is a hoot, and shows that the current King's Singers have lost none of their predecessors' ability to sing at ridiculous velocities, without skittling their consonants all over the bowling alley." BBC Music

"The box-set is a delight for King's fans and a defiant statement of longevity." Choir & Organ
