Having always admired the King's Singers, I was keen to have an example of their performances. This collection seemed a good option covering all sorts of different music.
However, I have been very disappointed, and have now given the CDs away ! Most of the discs are of 'popular' music, and to a large extent miss out the excellent performances of classical music of all periods. In addition, alot of the tracks have a backing accompaniment. I was looking for the unaccompanied sound.
I should probably have looked mroe carefully at the CD track lists, and if they are your sort of music, this may be a good buy.

A fine selection of 5 early albums by the 'classic' king's singers, showcasing their ever remarkable versatility in repertoire. Titles are: 1. The Beatles Connection, 2. A tribute to the Comedian Harmonists, 3. Folk songs of the British Isles, 4. Madrigal History Tour and 5. Believe in Music. Sadly, no original cover artwork has been included. The package is a strangely anonymous 'brown paper' affair throughout. No prizes for design here - but the music shines.
