The King’s Singers explore the folk songs and melodies of the world in a new programme entitled Postcards. In their own words:

“In our travels we have amassed a wonderful collection of folksongs and popular songs from numerous countries, many of which we use as encores when we visit. The influences and sources are extraordinarily far-ranging, and each song has its own local characteristics. To celebrate the diversity of music that we perform and the numerous countries we visit each concert season, we have recorded an album of some of our favourite folksongs from around the world.” 

Typically immaculate performances of songs collected by the King’s Singers on their global travels, and used as encores. Velvet vocal blending is a given, and mellifluous arrangements – BBC Music Magazine
