In 1968 six choral scholars from Cambridge founded a singing group and accidentally started a phenomenon. Two counter tenors, a tenor, two baritones and a bass – the line-up remains while the faces have been refreshed. Fifty years on, it’s hard to think of a group whose music-making has aged so well – with joy and eclecticism defining their material, and vocal sheen and glorious harmonies setting new benchmarks in a cappella singing. This evening’s programme, Gold, spans music from the Renaissance to the Beatles proving that first-class musicianship never goes out of fashion.
‘The Golden Anniversary (50th!) of the a cappella group, the King’s Singers, was marked by a concert at Carnegie Hall this weekend, and it would have been momentous if it had simply marked that milestone; it was, however much more than a milestone, and it re-affirmed this ensemble’s continued stature among the preeminent ensembles of the world.'
