The King’s Singers set for Lichfield Cathedral performance

One of the world’s most celebrated ensembles are set to perform at Lichfield Cathedral.

The King's Singers

The King's Singers

The King’s Singers will appear on June 1 with a lively programme of secular music from the reigns of some of the Queen’s more colourful forebears, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and Victoria.

The group have commissioned Paul Drayton, the composer of one of the most requested pieces in the King’s Singers repertoire, Masterpiece, to write a new work. This amusing history will relate the sometimes precarious nature of the succession of England’s monarchs, from Alfred the Great onwards.

From Gesualdo to Michael Bublé, The King’s Singers are instantly recognisable for their spot-on intonation, impeccable vocal blend and incisive timing. Their 2012 touring schedule takes them to 20 countries around the world, and to some of the greatest concert halls, including Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall and the Berlin Philharmonie.

The singers have a packed schedule of concerts, recordings, media and education work that spans the globe. Championing the work of young and established composers, they remain consummate entertainers; a class-act with a delightfully British wit.

The King’s Singers’ Royal Rhymes & Rounds starts at 7.30pm. It is presented by Lichfield Festival and sponsored by David Arthur Opticians. Tickets, ranging from £10 to £25, are available online at www.lichfieldfestival.org, by calling 01543 306270 or in person at 7 The Close, Lichfield WS13 7LD.
