Romance du Soir – The King’s Singers

Combining perennial favourites with wonderful new discoveries, this disc of immediately appealing pieces reflects the much-loved repertoire at the heart of a King’s Singers programme, performed with the skill and flair that distinguishes the group and makes it one of the world’s most popular a cappella ensembles. It includes works by Elgar, Schumann, Schubert and Saint-Saëns, as well as a new piece by the well-known American composer Libby Larsen.

This latest venture between Signum Classics and The King’s Singers follows hot on the heels of a live DVD and CD release of their 2008 performance for the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall (SIG DVD 005 and SIG CD 150), and the 2008 Grammy-nominated album Simple Gifts (SIG CD 212).

"This sweetshop full of lollipops offers some favourites from the King’s Singers’ vast repertoire of melodious part songs, sung with their trademark lustrous tone and precise, yet unforced, clarity..."

Stephen Pritchard - The Observer - 21 February 2009


                   Performance *****      Recording *****
“Here’s a stunning display of unaccompanied part-singing by six consummate vocal artists. Sullivan’s ’The Long Day Closes’, beautifully shaped and shorn of sentimental Victorian accretions, draws the curtain down on an outstandingly successful recital.”

Terry Blain - BBC Music Magazine
