Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"A program focusing on sacred music with sombre themes--lamentations, mourning, sorrow, fasting and tears, deliverance from everlasting death--might be doomed before it began; but The King's Singers as usual bring a freshness and vitality to their vocalism and a warm, welcoming quality to their sound that projects a certain "personality" that not only makes listening easy, but brings substantial rewards as well. No one who enjoys this repertoire or The King's Singers needs further encouragement; and it's always a pleasure to be reminded of or introduced so favorably to composers such as Alonso Lobo. Highly recommended!" -Classics Today (10/10)
