Great American Songbook

£12.00

Around the time The King’s Singers was starting up, one of the most productive periods of song- writing 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.


I’ve got the world on a string
Begin the Beguine
I’ve got you under my skin
It’s de-lovely
Night and day
Let’s misbehave
Ev’ry time we say goodbye
I won’t dance
Cry me a river
Beyond the sea
When I fall in love
Cheek to cheek
My funny Valentine
The lady is a tramp
