Text in englischer Sprache verfügbar

If you like the style of the King's Singers, with their delicate male extended jazz harmonies and their vocal dooby-doo-wahs and ching-ching-ching-ching-chings, you'll surely agree that the Christmas song, with its simple, familiar, and infinitely malleable materials, fits their work well. With the release of Christmas Songbook in 2016, they have issued three Christmas albums, plus one with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. As the Christmas Songbook title suggests, this one is a bit more oriented toward American popular repertoire than the earlier ones, although there are still several traditional carols. These are placed as slow interludes, letting the vocal flights and jazzy elaborations settle down for a minute to luscious straight harmonies. For the full effect, though, sample one of the more ornate arrangements, like Winter Wonderland, which, like several other pieces on the album, is arranged by the composer Alexander L'Estrange. After nearly 50 years and countless changes in membership, the sound of the King's Singers has not only remained constant but has continued to develop, and that's why they still flourish while so many other ensembles have fallen by the wayside. An early recommendation for Christmas 2016 and beyond.

Fünf Jahrhunderte britische Chöre, fünf Jahrzehnte King’s Singers

Mehr als viertausend Chöre bilden in Großbritannien das Fundament der typisch britischen Musiktradition Nicht umsonst wird von der großen Tradition der britischen Chormusik gesprochen. In Großbritannien gibt es ungefähr 80 Chöre an Kathedralen und Universitäten, alle mehr oder weniger mit Weltniveau, sowie hunderte von kleinen Kirchenchören, ganz zu schweigen von den Tausenden von Amateurchören, die alles singen, was es zu singen gibt, von gregorianischen Gesängen bis zu Musicals, von Bach bis zu den Beatles. „Tausende“ ist nicht nur eine Redensart: nach British Choirs on the Net gibt es in England nicht weniger als 3400 Chöre, 350 in Wales, 260 in Schottland, drei Dutzend in Nordirland…
