Gold Stories


1975 was a great year for us, for many reasons. We met, and sung for (for the first time, but certainly not last) the Queen Mother. We also made our second ever trip to Australia and New Zealand in the Spring. Then in the autumn, we went for a three-week trip to the USA. One of the stops was in Waco, Texas, where we had been twice, on the two previous years. The concert at Waco Hall was sold out again, and we were received very warmly but the Texans. So warmly, in fact, that we were given the great civic honour of having the day – Monday 17 November – named ‘King’s Singers Day’ in the city, by its Mayor. We’re not sure that at any time before or since that day, the group’s name has been lent to mark a particular day in history anywhere else in the world. But it was a true privilege to have this honour bestowed on us in Waco, Texas in 1975.
