Congratulations to Nigel Short

Congratulations to former King’s Singer, Nigel Short, who wins his first Gramophone Award as the producer for The Spy’s Choirbook.   Released on the Obsidian label, the recording by David Skinner, the English Cornett & Sackbut Ensemble and Alamire contains 34 four-voice motets by French and Franco-Flemish composers.

We have had the pleasure to collaborate with Professor David Skinner who worked with us to devise the programme of Renaissance works for our Jean Richafort Requiem disc.   Nigel Short left the group in 2000, founding his professional choir Tenebrae and creating an exceptional catalogue of recordings as their conductor.   We invited Nigel to produce his first recording with The King’s Singers this year and can share that it was an exceptionally positive experience for us all. We look forward to releasing the recording next year on Signum Records.
