Product Description

Product Description

GRAMMY® Award winners in 2009, The King's Singers are one of the world s most celebrated ensembles. Their programming concept in this disc is unique: built upon the individual clauses of The Lord's Prayer, beginning and ending in plainchant, it ranges over the centuries to explore the spiritually charged text. Chant is at the heart of the programme, and each composer's setting illuminates the others, shedding rich interpretative light on the poetic and devotional aspects of the prayer.

One of the world's most celebrated ensembles, The King's Singers have a packed schedule of concerts, recordings, media and education work that spans the globe. Championing the work of both young and established composers, they are instantly recognizable for their spot-on intonation, impeccable vocal blend, flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing. They are also consummate entertainers: a class act with a delightfully British wit.

Review

'There are few vocal ensembles that can work up a concept album like The King's Singers, and this... blossoms into something rather wonderful as they are grouped into sections commenting on aspects of the Lord's Prayer... The performances have all the panache that we associate with this group.' Performance *****/Recording **** --Anthony Pryer, BBC Music Magazine - Dec.'12

A wonderful tribute to the Christian religion that its creed and teaching inspired so much that is unforgettably beautiful... Find out for yourselves what a rewarding CD this is, gloriously sung and perfectly recorded. --Ivan March, December Gramophone 2012
