The Queen's Six

Q6layers

Male voice a cappella | Windsor Castle

...

"The close musical rapport that develops when six men sing together every day, as the Queen’s Six do, is very much in evidence on this, their impressive debut album, recorded at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, where they are lay clerks in the choir. They bring seamless blend and balance to music from the reign of Elizabeth I, from whom they take their name. [...]"

**** review by Stephen Pritchard

"I had the distinct pleasure of hearing the Queen's Six sing what I think is probably the finest performance of Byrd's Mass for Five Voices that I have yet heard. Beyond the perfect tuning, inviting stage demeanour, and enviable sense of ensemble, what the group really brings to this music is that quality of a personal and even furtive response to religion that Byrd surely intended in this work. It was an experience that I shall not soon forget."

"Singing together every day at St George's has clearly given The Queen's Six enviable quality of tone but it's their late-night-jazz close harmony arrangements that blew me away. This group gets better and better."

"I really enjoyed the singing in your concert the other day [Brinkburn Festival 2014]. I thought that the voices blended beautifully and you really captured the style of each piece in a very individual way. I felt that the acoustic suited your choice of music and the voices resonated wonderfully in the space."
