Biography

BONJOUR PARIS The French call the oboe the “noble wood”. Some of the most important
works for the “haut bois” have originated in France. Perhaps because the vibrant, singing soul of the
instrument and its closeness to the human voice have always fascinated French musicians.
Over the years, the German oboist Albrecht Mayer has taken his instrument out of its ... Read more in Amazon's Albrecht Mayer Store

Product Description

Product Description

One of Germany s best-loved classical performers joins forces with a legendary close-harmony group for a winter-themed album to bring warmth to the dark months of the year: Albrecht Mayer & The King s Singers

The pairing of probably the world s most famous and accomplished oboist, with the UK s celebrated vocal ensemble The King s Singers is a heavenly musical partnership. The interplay of colours, melodies and harmonies between these performers enchant and delight in Baroque, classical and seasonal favorites

Mayer, the oboist with the magical tone, is renowned for the sublime singing quality of his playing. On Let It Snow the tone of his oboe blends magnificently with the silky sounds of a group that has been entertaining audiences across the globe since 1968

This specially chosen mixed-genre programme is woven around the theme of winter: snow, ice, fireplaces, sleigh rides, Christmas, New Year s, Chanukkah

Not sure about the cobination of acapella and Oboe. Lovely sound both but together..., not sure. The arrangements are not as good as in other Christmas albums by TKS.

5.0 out of 5 stars A first-class collection of interesting music! 11 Dec 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best Kings Singers collections, with masterful arrangements using Albrecht Mayer and his oboes. Musically diverse and harmonically interesting, even for those of us a little jaded by familiar holiday tunes.
5.0 out of 5 stars King's for a reason 11 May 2014
By Dr. Neil S. Kaye - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
King's Singers are the best acapella group for a reason and their Xmas album is a nice addition to our collection.
5.0 out of 5 stars Liked this so well... 10 Jan 2014
By J. Bevan - Published on Amazon.com

That we sent a copy from Amazon.uk to a friend of ours in Ascot England. We both enjoyed it immensely. It is great fun with musicianship that is way up in the stars. The oboe and the men's sextet may seem like an odd combination, but it definitely works. Highly recommended.
4.0 out of 5 stars More Winter than Christmas 27 Dec 2013
By Brent D. Kornman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a more traditional Christmas album, you may be disappointed. If you are looking for a Winter album, or an album with world class performers and world class arrangements, then this is it! Mayer makes his oboes sing in ways that are rare for oboe players. The King's Singers are, well, probably the best mens singing group around (and they have some stiff competition). Both Mayer and the King's Singers are both flawless and a great pleasure to listen to. Together, they are absolutely amazing. They perform together as though they had been a single group for years. It is a real pleasure to listen to. And it is clear they are having a blast performing. And (mostly - see below) the arrangements play to both Mayer's and the Singers strengths. Some of the songs just make your hair tingle: they are so good.

So why only 4 stars? First, I was looking for more of a Christmas album (my problem). Second, while they do an excellent job with Let It Snow, I just didn't like it much. Given it was the signature song, I subtracted a star. Your mileage may vary.
4.0 out of 5 stars captures a reflective mood of Christmas 27 Dec 2013
By J L Heeringa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The harmonies and cohesion between voice and instrument is exquisite. While not what I expected for a Christmas album, the aim of the musicians was to capture a winter reflection of Christmas, the choice of repertoire is sensitive and beautifully executed. With not the usual fare of Christmas pop songs, I believe this is a great addition to your collection of festive music.
