Love from King’s

Acclaimed close harmony group The King’s Men return with Love From King’s, a brand-new album of beautiful new arrangements of romantic pop & jazz favourites, featuring classic tracks by Adele, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Simon & Garfunkel, Michael Bublé and more.

After Hours

The King’s Men (the men’s voices from The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge) present a selection of unrecorded pop and jazz a capella arrangements written for the group by current and former Choral Scholars. The songs range from classics such as ‘Swing Low, Sweet Chariot’ and ‘Old Man River’ to more recent hits such as Carly-Rae Jepson’s ‘Call Me Maybe’. The album reached No. 1 on the iTunes Classical Download Chart.

“Refreshing… totally cool” – Pizzicato

Twelve Days of Christmas

The King’s Men is the close-harmony vocal group formed by the current Choral Scholars of King’s College, Cambridge. Twelve Days of Christmas showcases the lighter side of their seasonal repertoire including Away in a Manger and Gabriel’s Message alongside classic favourites such as Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer and Santa Baby. Pat Dunachie, now First Alto in the King’s Singers, can be heard channelling Mariah Carey in All I Want for Christmas is You.

“All the cosiness and geekiness of a garish Christmas jumper.” – Gramophone
