Romance Du Soir / King's Singers
David Hurley, counter tenor; Robin Tyson, counter tenor; Paul Phoenix, tenor; Philip Lawson, baritone; Christopher Gabbitas, baritone; Stephen Connolly, bass
Combining perennial favorites with wonderful new discoveries, these immediately appealing pieces reflect the much-loved repertoire at the heart of a King’s Singers program with the skill and flair that distinguishes the group as one of the world’s most popular a cappella ensembles. Includes works by Elgar, Schumann, Schubert and Saint-Saens, as well as a new piece by popular 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 and the 2008 Grammy-nominated album Simple Gifts.
