A must-have for chorale aficionados everywhere that sees perhaps the world’s finest aa cappella ensemble The King’s Singers join forces with The Concordia Choir - one of the USA’a best collegiate groups to perform works by choal composers Eric Whitacre, Bob Chilcott and Morten Lauridsen.

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 young and established composers, they remain consummate entertainers; a class-act with a delightfully British wit. From Gesualdo and György Ligeti to Michael Bublé, The King’s Singers are instantly recognisable for their spot-on intonation, their impeccable vocal blend, the flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing.

The Concordia Choir of Moorhead, Minnesota is one of America’s finest a cappella choirs. Since 1920, the 72-voice choir has performed in nearly every major hall including Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center and has taken numerous international tours. The Choir is broadcast throughout the United States on public radio stations and on television via its Emmy-award winning Concordia Christmas Concert.

"... the performances are all one would expect of the King’s Singers, and the Concordia Choir provides a nice contrast... The Concordia Choir, one of the best known of US college choirs, has a wonderful blend of voices and their diction is also exemplary for a large choral group. They do full justice to Lauridsen’s most popular piece, O Magnum Mysterium ... "

Leslie Wright - MusicWeb-International.com - 3 August 2012


" The King’s Singers in usual fine form, nicely complemented by tghe Concordians.... An easy recommendation."  ****
