    King's singers

    I think they are so versatile, anything from a comedy piece like this

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oio1G...eature=related

    To a madrigal like this

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3yy_ZT_e64

    To an arrangement of a traditional piece like this

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmOb5...eature=related

    Or their own treatment to Beatles numbers like this

    The members of the group have changed over the years but they seem to keep their unique style.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Thanks for posting Mike. I love the Kings Singers, my parents used to play their albums (yes, on vinyl!) and I actually saw them in concert whilst in Canada many years back. Superb, polished entertainment from a highly talented group.

    Since about 1953, England has had a queen. Why are they still called the King's Singers??

    The original group were from King's College Cambridge (maybe the present day members are also)
    Cheers MIKE.
