Notes & Reviews:

These legendary performances are on CD for the first time. Described by Gramophone as possessing an "impeccably manicured vocal blend, enchanting the ear from first to last note," The King's Singers maintain the highest caliber of a cappella performance and continue to be one of the most sought-after and critically acclaimed vocal ensembles in the world. Recognition of that fact was underlined by a prestigious Grammy Award in the 2009 ceremony.
