Throughout The King’s Singers’ existence contemporary music has been an extremely important element of our repertoire. We have commissioned music by some of the world’s leading composers,with many writing for a choral ensemble for the first time. For this recording, we have turned to the music of three choral music superstars – Eric Whitacre, Bob Chilcott and Morten Lauridsen. The inspiration for this CD came from three works written in 2008 as part of the celebrations for our 40th anniversary – Whitacre’s The Stolen Child and Chilcott’s High Flight and A Thanksgiving. All three pieces are scored for The King’s Singers and SATB choir.
