The King's Singers on Finding Harmony
Friday, February 7, 2020
From Renaissance polyphony to the US Civil Rights Movement, we discuss this ambitious and fascinating album
The latest album from acclaimed choral group The King’s Singers draws together music from the Protestant Reformation through to the US Civil Rights Movement, and right up until the present day. The uniting theme is that reflected in the album’s title – Finding Harmony, where music has given hope in times of oppression and brought people together after tragedy. For the latest Gramophone podcast, Editor Martin Cullingford met with two members of the group, countertenor Patrick Dunachie and bass Jonathan Howard, to discuss the ambitious album – at turns poignant, powerful and uplifting – which is available now on Signum Classics.
