The King's Singers
Last updated: 24.02.20
ksintro_anim.gifAccording to the Internet source given below, The King's Singers was founded on 1st May 1968 by six choral scholars at King's College, part of Cambridge University. These were Martin Lane, Alastair Hume, Alastair Thompson, Richard Salter, Simon Carrington and Brian Kay.
During the more than 50 years since their founding they have sung in almost every major concert hall in the world, made countless television broadcasts, released over 150 recordings, and won Grammy and Emmy awards.
The present (December 2019) ensemble comprise Christopher Bruerton, Edward Button, Patrick Dunachie, Nick Ashby, Jonathan Howard and Julian Gregory. Between 2019 and 1968 there have been 17 other ensembles (check the link below for their names).
Personal remarks: [More ...]
All these different ensembles are for me are indistinguishable from one another. Over the years I have met "experts" and "connoisseurs" who have their favourites and make claims that they can tell them apart. I cannot. I am not expert but an unashamed groupie who attends every concert whenever they are in my neighbourhood. The first was in the early 1970's in Bremen, Germany and the last in Auckland, New Zealand on my birthday in 2014. On that occasion I was delighted to see David Hurley who I had first seen and admire sometime in 1990 still going strong.
For me these world musicians represent the acme of musicianship and stagecraft to which all other groups should aspire to.
