The King's Singers: Christmas Concert 2011 (HD 1080p)

One of the world's most celebrated ensembles, The King's Singers have a packed schedule of concerts, recordings, media and education work that spans the globe. Championing the work of young and established composers, they remain consummate entertainers; a class-act with a delightfully British wit. From Gesualdo and György Ligeti to Michael Bublé, The King's Singers are instantly recognisable for their spot-on intonation, impeccable vocal blend, the flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing.

This 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.

Ο πλούσιος ήχος, ο ακριβής τονισμός, η εξαιρετικά σωστή άρθρωση που αναδεικνύει όμορφα και την παραμικρή λεπτομέρεια, και φυσικά το χαρακτηριστικό τους χιούμορ, είναι αυτά που κάνουν συναρπαστική κάθε εμφάνιση ή ηχογράφηση του διάσημου βρετανικού a cappella φωνητικού συνόλου The King's Singers.

Η συναυλία δόθηκε στην ιστορική αγγλικανική εκκλησία του Αγίου Λουκά στο Λονδίνο το 2011, για τις ανάγκες του DVD "The King's Singers: Christmas", το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε τα Χριστούγεννα της ίδιας χρονιάς από την Signum Records.
