KING'S SINGERS, THE

David Hurley • Timothy Wayne-Wright, countertenors
Paul Phoenix, tenor
Christopher Bruerton • Christopher Gabbitas, baritones
Jonathan Howard, bass

One of the world’s most celebrated ensembles, The King’s Singers have a packed schedule of concerts, recordings, media and education work that spans the globe. Championing the work of both young and established composers, they are instantly recognisable for their spot-on intonation, impeccable vocal blend, flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing. They are also consummate entertainers: a class act with a delightfully British wit.

Each year, The King’s Singers perform over 120 concerts across the globe in some of the world’s most beautiful concert halls including the Carnegie Hall in New York, Sydney Opera House, Berlin’s Philharmonie, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and The National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing. With a discography of over 150 recordings, The King’s Singers have garnered both awards and significant critical acclaim, including a Grammy® in 2009 for their studio album Simple Gifts. Always deeply committed to new choral music, they have commissioned over 200 works from prominent contemporary composers, including Richard Rodney Bennett, Berio, Maxwell Davies, Ligeti, Lukaszewski, Penderecki, Rutter, Takemitsu and Tavener.

There are over 2,000,000 pieces of sheet music published by The King’s Singers in circulation. Their arrangements are sung the world over by school and college choirs, and by ensembles both amateur and professional.
