Royal Rhymes & Rounds – The King’s Singers

On a new disc to celebrate the 2012 Diamond Jubilee, The King’s Singers present a selection of works from the past 500 years, written in honour of the great monarchs of Britain.

Starting with works for (and in some cases by) Henry VIII, the programme covers the Elizabethan ‘Triumphs of Oriana’ by composers such as Gibbons, Mundy, and Dowland; a very Victorian selection of dedicatory works by Elgar, Parry, and Parratt; choral arrangements from the opera Gloriana by Benjamin Britten; and a new piece by Paul Drayton that comically pens A Rough Guide to the Royal Succession. Drayton is perhaps best known to fans of The King’s Singers as the composer of their much-loved encore work Masterpiece.
