The King’s Singers GOLD

£24.00

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 box-set is a delight for King’s fans and a defiant statement of longevity Choir and Organ

Fans of the ensemble will delight in finding a copy under the tree on Christmas morning… beautifully supple, technically pristine singing – Primephonic

This disc is a distillation, by their current incarnation, of what makes them special. Here’s to the next fifty years – Music Web International

It’s hard to think of a group whose music-making has aged so well… Here’s to another 50 years – Gramophone
