How you respond to this collection from the King's Singers will depend on your view of their eclectic approach. As the title suggests, it is an extremely varied programme from some excellently-sung renaissance chansons by great composers like Janequin and Josquin through Fauré's Pavane, English, American and South African folk music, witty arrangements of nursery rhymes and so on to a capella arrangements of songs by the like of Neil Young and Lennon & McCartney.

All are arranged and sung with great brilliance and I found some pieces absolutely stunning (the Josquin chanson and Neil Young's After The Goldrush, for example). The vocal virtuosity on display is quite remarkable, often surprising and often extremely effective. I found some parts less enjoyable, but that may be my individual taste, I suppose. The South African songs just didn't quite seem to fit with the King's Singers sound, for example, and I have always loathed the songs Puppet on a String and Ob La Di Ob La Da, however witty and brilliant the musicianship. This makes my enjoyment a little patchy, but I do keep going back to the bits I like and I wouldn't want to be without them.

In spite of these reservations, I would recommend this to anyone interested in vocal music. You may well find stuff here which you don't much like, but there is bound to be a lot which you will like very much and some that you will love. It's a fine record of the variety of a truly virtuosic group whose membership has varied over the years but whose sound and brilliance have remained the same and there is a great deal here for anyone to enjoy.
