A fan of the Kings Singers since their inception many moons ago! All my LPs have long since gone - saw this on Amazon & thought it would be a representative selection to get me goung again. I was not disappointed, even though none of the original singers are still in the group the sound is still as authentic as ever. I shall be collecting others from Amazon, they're already on my wish list!

As the title says, this double CD compilation (48 tracks) offers a very pleasant & rich display of the previous acclaimed recordings from this famous British male vocal group. All along the differents parts, we can feel the airy melodic spirit and their mastering singing skills among the several replacing "voice musicians" who have succeeded.
Recordings ranging from their from 1974 (madrigals) to 1990 (classical pieces) with in between some traditional English folk songs, Elizabethan arias to a few of their famous interpretation of Beatles or Jazz songs. This double CD comes with a 15 page booklet (half in English, half in German) with a short resume (3 1/2 page) of this world renowned vocal formation.
Definitely a "Must Have" as a sample of vocal group recordings mostly A Capella.
