The King’s Singers cappella choir

 


With a discography of over 150 recordings, The King’s Singers have garnered both awards and significant critical acclaim, including a Grammy® for their studio album “Simple Gifts” on Signum.

In June 2013, the group’s contribution to classical recording was recognised when they were selected as one of only two vocal ensembles to join the Gramophone Hall of Fame, marking their influence and inspiration across the years. A new collaborative project sees the group work withoboist Albrecht Mayer for a disc of works on the theme of winter, released on Deutsche Grammophon. 

Deeply committed to new choral music, they have commissioned over 200 works from prominent contemporary composers and choral luminaries, including Whitacre, Richard Rodney Bennett, Berio, Maxwell Davies, Ligeti, Lukaszewski, Penderecki, Rutter, Takemitsu and Tavener. The group are committed to maintaining and developing the international choral canon by commissioning new works from both young and established composers, with the 2013-2014 season seeing new works from both James MacMillan and Joanna Marsh.

The King’s Singers have an extraordinary history of television appearances. A favourite of The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, they performed with them for the Winter Olympics and appeared in their recent Christmas concert, which was broadcast on PBS across the US to a combined live audience of 80,000 and is available on DVD. Their televised performance at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall, London was awarded a Midem International Classical Award.

In addition to their sell-out concerts worldwide, The King’s Singers share their artistry through numerous workshops and masterclasses, and by publishing prodigious quantities of sheet music: at present, they have over two million items in circulation through their publisher, Hal Leonard. Their arrangements are sung the world over by school and college choirs, and by ensembles both amateur and professional.

King’s Singers as always great  - La Prealpina 29.01.2017

...a vocal concert high class, a lesson of style and technique.

...their enormous repertoire... “Postcards from the World” was as a magician’s hat from what they draw everything, from Renaissance Madrigals to a very refined polyphonic a capella retelling of “Volare” by Domenico Modugno. But everything is proposed with the same impeccable elegance, with a surprising cleanliness and smoothness of the vocalization, an amalgam of tones prepared with the same care of a cake of haute cuisine...the art of the King’s Singers is so refined that shows with easiness what is instead the fruit of a long preparation of study....

....they are young but consumed ( very skilled)  musicians , measured in their expression as gentlemen of the XVI century able to polish every phrase and every note as gold and silver.

....A night to remember.        Luca Segalla

Festival di Cremona  - King’s Singers perfezione di voci

La Provincia 12.05.2011: ...una fusione di voci davvero straordinaria, attacchi pennellati e cadenze morbide come un soffio , per non parlare di una intonazione che rasenta la perfezione. Grandi applausi -tutti meritati- per l’ensemble inglese.    Roberto Codazzi

Alba : tutto esaurito per i King’s Singers

Tutto esaurito per il concerto dei King’s Singers, ieri sera nella Chiesa di San Domenico ad Alba. Diverse generazioni ad assistere all’esibizione solo voce per musica e parole intonate da uno dei gruppi vocali più acclamati al mondo. …..

.....Il pubblico assorto in religioso silenzio ascolta prima “I Canti della Rosa” di Ivan Moody – composizione presentata in prima assoluta il mese scorso a Londra – poi “ Un soir de neige” piccola cantata a sei voci di Francio Poulenc.

Scroscianti applausi per i canti natalizi intonati in finale...... Gisella Divino
