About the album

The music contained in this record represents a selection of Vespers movements written by the organist Johann Pachelbel. They have in common the distinctively sonorous scoring of four or five-part choir, accompanied by a six-part string orchestra to which is added, at the composer’s express request, a bassoon.

‘Charivari Agréable is one of the most versatile Early Music groups around at the moment; under its benign director, Kah-Ming Ng, it appears to be infinitely adaptable, finding musicians who can fit into any of its many and varied programmes’ International Record Review. They represent ‘a new and very exciting phase of the early music revival, one that enriches the existing repertory and can bring us ever closer to the spirit of the original music’ Gramophone.

Described by The Times as a group that has “stayed in character over four decades, yet retuned itself to the times” and by Gramophone as “enchanting the ear from first to last note” The King’s Singers are truly remarkable. They continue to be one of the most sought-after and critically acclaimed vocal ensembles in the world, performing a rich and varied repertoire from Gesualdo to György Ligeti and Michael Bublé. Internationally recognised for their work in the classical field, they retain the sparkle that delights so many fans when they perform much loved numbers from the lighter end of the repertoire. Whatever the music The King’s Singers are instantly recognisable for their spot-on intonation, their impeccable vocal blend, the flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing.

Hooggewaardeerde ensembles voegen de Vespers van Pachelbel toe aan de meesterwerken
Deze opname bevat een selectie van Vesperdelen gecomponeerd door de organist Johann Pachelbel. Wat ze gemeen hebben is hun typisch melodieuze bezetting voor vier- of vijfstemmig koor, begeleid door een strijkorkest met zes partijen waaraan op verzoek van de componist een fagot is toegevoegd. Ze vormen een veelzeggende belichaming van uitzonderlijk vocaal componeren en een passende opsomming van alles dat de 17e-eeuwse muziek zo geliefd maakt.

The King’s Singers, door de Gramophone beschreven als “enchanting the ear from first to last note”, is werkelijk een opmerkelijk vocaal ensemble. Ze blijven een van de meest gewilde en hooggewaardeerde vocale ensembles ter wereld, en voeren een rijk en gevarieerd repertoire uit, van Gesualdo tot aan György Ligeti, tot Michael Bublé. Ze worden internationaal erkend voor hun werk in het klassieke terrein, maar weten hun sprankeling waar zoveel fans van genieten te behouden tijdens uitvoeringen van nummers aan de lichtere kant van het repertoire. Wat voor muziek ze ook zingen, The King’s Singers zijn onmiddellijk herkenbaar dankzij hun precieze intonatie, feilloze vermenging van stemmen, vlekkeloze articulatie van de tekst en scherpe timing.

Op dit album werken The King’s Singers samen met Charivari Agréable, door de International Record Review beschreven als “one of the most versatile Early Music groups around at the moment.”
