The King’s Singers Christmas DVD

Label: Signum (SIGDVD008) | Year: 2011

62 minutes running time

After the triumphant success of The King’s Singers last DVD Live at the BBC Proms in 2008, this new video performance recorded at LSO St Luke’s in London sets an eclectic assortment of modern Christmas classics with special arrangements of some much loved favourites. Ranging from the beautiful simplicity of Michael Pretorius’s Es ist ein Ros’ entsprungen to the mad capers of Gordon Langford’s arrangement of Deck the Hall, this is a delightful programme which reflects a typical live King’s Singers Christmas show.

Praise for the King’s Singers CD ‘Christmas’ (SIGCD502) include:

“The King’s Singers’ style is beautifully detailed, and even the most familiar carols sound fresh” Classic FM Magazine

“Precise intonation, instinctive articulation, a downy, luxuriant tone, all captured in an excitingly lifelike recording” International Record Review

Please NOTE – PAL Region 0 will work in all DVD players whichever region.
