The King's Singers celebrate their 50th anniversary with a celebratory 3-album set, combining three complete programs of Close Harmony, Spiritual and Secular pieces. The King's Singers write: "The current incarnation of King's Singers approached this 50th Anniversary release with great excitement - albeit with some trepidation! How could we possibly create an album (or, as it turned out, three albums!) that would reflect all the group's work over five decades, honoring it's history and the achievements of our predecessors? In the end, we decided to go back to basics. We spent months trawling through programs and recordings to finalize this selection of music: old favorites that the group has performed for decades jostle for position with more recent additions (both classical and pop), and compete with brand new works commissioned especially for this project. A long-list of well over a hundred pieces has been whittled down to a final track-list of around sixty that, we feel, represents all the styles and musical epochs that The King's Singers have championed across five decades of performance and recording."
